Does your SUSE distro have any partition-resize-and-copy tool? I suppose it has. I'd definately use it if it's there.
For manual labour:
type 'mount' to see which partitions are mounted (and thus can be u(n)mounted).
To see the names of the partitions on /dev/hda: type 'fdisk /dev/hda' and type p at the prompt.
man mount: read all about mounting. You'll need the name and partition number like (dev/hdc2).
And you need a directroy to mount it on, for example
(I like very descriptive names when things are risky)
then, mount it!
mount -t ntfs /dev/hdc2 /mnt/mountforhdc2
when copying, you could use cp -rp /mnt/[from/]* /mnt/[to/]
-r to copy underlying directories
-p to preserve the time stamps of the files
Caveat: IFAIK you cannot install windows on a disk that already has linux patitions on it. So install Win on a blank disk, then add linux.
