At the end of the installation, YaST opens a dialog in which to configure the graphics card and other hardware devices. Just click a component to start its configuration. For the most part, YaST detects and configure the devices automatically.

[Tip]S/390, zSeries: Hardware Configuration

On IBM S/390 and zSeries, there is no display that would be supported by XFree. Accordingly, you will not find a Graphics Cards entry on these systems.

You may skip any peripheral devices and configure them later. However, you should configure the graphics card right away. Although the display settings as autoconfigured by YaST should be generally acceptable, most users have very strong preferences as far as resolution, color depth, and other graphics features are concerned. To change these settings, select Graphics Cards. The configuration is explained in Section 2.4.5. “Graphics Card and Monitor (SaX2)”.

After YaST has written the configuration data, finish the installation of SUSE LINUX with Finish in the final dialog.
