So what exactly is the problem?
If you try to install SuSE Linux to your computer, the initial installation screen gives you the oportunity, to select the language, you'd linke to install Linux with, by pressing the F2 key.
You can also select the screen resolution by pressing F3.

After these selections, you should be continue to install SuSE Linux without any problem.

After installation is completet and you reboot the system, the graphical desktop should appear in your selected language, but the terminal console (pressing CTRL+ALT+F1 to F6) will come with english language by default and has to be configured seperately to use another language.

Is this your problem?

it is hard to describe the problem

it is like the computer gets highjacked and is taken over by an outside force, but it obvious the problem is the SUSE install disk

it won't allow me to select ENGLISH

it tries to select dutch or another language

something is out of wack

maybe i should try to download a cleaner copy of SUSE from the 'NET

You always should download it from the official website.
Official mirror servers are listed there or you download request gets automatically redirected to one of the official mirror servers.

Btw.: While you are booting your computer to the installation DVD, there is no software running, that might give someone else the opportunity, to remotely access your computer.
Even if your hard drive may be infected by a virus, it's not running, because no windows is running, but linux kernel gets loaded.
