Installing Suse while keeping XP
Hi. I am new to Linux and Suse for that matter. I have windows xp on my system right now and I am planning to add Suse on to it. Not wanting to do a fresh install of windows xp I was planning to create a new partition for Suse using Partition magic which is not a destructive partitioning program. I want to know what type of partition I need to create, also creating a new partition I get a lot of questions from the program such as:
1) should I create it before or after C: (after is recommended)
2) Primary or Logical (Logical recommended)
3) File System Type: Fat, Fat32, NTFS, Linux ext2 , Linux ext3 , Linux swap
For my Linux I am assuming Linux ext2? and make it Primary? Also how big should my swap partition be? I have 1 gig of ram by the way. There is a button to "install another operating system" Should I use that or create the partitions myself?
