when does it hangs? before the setup, or after
Is glx modules loaded at startup? Have you tired 'nvidia' modules instead of 'nv'? if yes, that have you got 'NVdriver' kernel module driver inserted? See if you have 'NVdriver' at 'lsmod' output.
If you find out you dont have NVdriver, you can dowload one from SuSE ftp; or compile the latest 0.9.6; get it from from Nvidia ftp.

under my Suse 7.0/p2-450mhz/256mb/TNT-16mb the 0.9.6 driver works great (Quake3 almost as good as in Win98SE)
