I suspect that your problem booting 10.2 was to do with the power management
package - (powersaved). I normally do not install this package on VIA
motherboards (You have to fight Yast to stop the package being installed)
Once installed you end up in a catch 22 situation of trying to disable CPU
frequency management but it hangs trying to boot.
Please refer to http://en.opensuse.org/VIA for more info.
Also try booting in "safemode" as it disables the power management.
