Have you checked the ISO for errors?

Have you set to boot from USB in BIOS?

Is it the "openSUSE-11.4-KDE-LiveCD-i686.iso?

Have you tested to download the ISO again or move it to the USB again? (just in case something got wrong the first time)

Is this what you have flowed: http://en.opensuse.org/Live_USB_stick

Have you tested UNetbootin? http://sourceforge.net/projects/unetbootin/

You can read about it on the download page, there is a section about verifying you download:
http://software.opensuse.org/114/en

If you do it manually:

You go here:
http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/11.4/iso/

You see that there is a checksums for each ISO file.

You can use any of them, if the MD5 sum. then there is many different software to check the MD5 checksum for the ISO.

On Linux you have the:

md5sum <iso-file>

See:

That has nothing to do with the topic. He can have as many OS as he wants on his computer...
