Default Gefore 7800 gt wont even launch sax2 in SUSE 10.0

Alrighty, i don't know what to do.

I just finished building this system but i can't even get the OS to load up properly.

The graphical installer with SuSE 10.0 worked fine and the log-in screen appears to be ok, but as soon as the Gnome desktop attempts to load the screen glitches up and freezes leaving mymouse still working tho.

It sounds like the X freezing problem others have had, but i can't even load Sax2, as that does the same freeze up gitch up bit). The newest nvidia drivers do not fit on a floppy disk to my knowledge, correct?

CPU: Opteron 170
Mother board: epox 9NPA+ SLI(latest bios sept 05)
Video card: EVGA 7800 GT
Ram: 2 gig G SKills ddr500
OS: SUSE 10.0 64bit

This is 1.0.7676 but I think the other drivers are about the same size.
 ls -lh /var/cache/apt-build/nvidia*tar*

I'm not too familiar with SUSE, but you should be able to prevent X from starting, or start up something else then Gnome (which tends to use all bells and whistles available).
Computer stuff I've owned at one time or another:
CPUs: K6-3 400, Duron 600, Thunderbird 1400, Barton 2500, Duron 1800, A-64 3700+, C2D E7200
Motherboards: Shuttle Via MVP, Asus A7V, Asus A7V133, Asus N8X-VM400, Abit NF7, Abit UL8, Asus P5Q Pro
Graphics Cards: TNT2, GF 2 MX, GF 2 Pro, GF4 MX, GF FX 5500, GF 6600, GF 7600 GT, GF 9800GT
