Thanks for the reply.
My question was not intended as a "How can I.....?" but was more like "What's happening ?".
The puzzle is not unique to DSL, and I have doubts about it being a Linux issue at heart.
For example, another system, will go through the motions of loading SUSE Live complete with progress comments and graphical splash screens then fall down at the last hurdle with a "Sync out of range" error. So, if Suse isn't natively compatible with my monitor, how does it manage to display the boot sequence graphics? Similarly, the laptop is happy with DSL graphics during boot but needs coaxing back to life afterwards.
Being curious, I'm wondering what video drivers are used during the start up sequence and I'll probably go on to be curious as to why they can't be used after instal.
