No media problem. In the meantime I tried Ubuntu 9.10 and had it up and 
running after a few minutes. A few minutes later I had downloaded and 
installed the nVidia drivers, and configured my multi-monitor desktop. 
The system also goes properly into standby. Only TV support didn't work, 
no difference to Suse, seems to be a special hardware issue.

Encouraged by this success I tried Suse 11.2 again, what turned out as a 
nightmare. After an hour of media check, configuring and installation I 
got an desktop without display options. No chance to set the display 
resolution, or multi-monitor support, and the desktop showed garbage 
every now and then. No network connections, neither via USB-DSL nor 
WLAN, only after I plugged in a network cable (across my room) I could 
use the Internet. But even then I couldn't install the nVidia drivers, 
the system went into text mode and was "confused" about something, and 
finally blanked the screen :-(

The only good news: the multi-boot works, so that I can still boot 10.3.

In my next try I'll check Kubuntu, and consider to make it my new 
working system.
