bypass the startup process on Suse(Linux)

Hi, I'm installing Suse (Linux) operating system on several computers. I would like to know, how I can bypass the login startup process. I would like the server to boot without having to go through the login.
Is there a way to pre-set my login and password during installation that will allow me to bypass the startup process?

I don't know what you mean by "bypass the startup process", but if you want to automatically install Suse Linux you may want to check out autoyast which allows for a scripted, automatic installation of it: http://doc.opensuse.org/projects/YaST/openSUSE11.3/autoinstall/ and http://www.suse.com/~ug/AutoYaST_FAQ.html.

If you want to reduce the boot loader time or selection of OS, you can modify grub.conf

Sorry, let me clarify.
I’m looking for something similar to kickstart in RedHat.  With KickStart I’m able to set my root password, keyboard and language. I would like to do the same with Suse. I’m looking for a good “how to” document that explains the process.

In the document above, you can see that unlike Kickstart, autoyast file is in XML format.  This document answers all the questions you asked.  There is a difference in older SUSE and newer ones and this document talks about it so just be aware.
