A doubt in SUSE installation

I recently installed SUSE 10 SP1 on my laptop. While installing, I "didn't" select custom partition. It said it'll shrink the windows partition to 12.7 gb... blah... blah...

SUSE is working fine. No problem with it.

But if I want to remove SUSE or "reinstall" it, then shud i hav to format the windows partition?

Is SUSE installed in windows partition? Or taking space from C drive or anything like that?

You can use "cfdisk -Ps" in a terminal as root to see your partition layout.

By the way, that was a question, not a doubt.
