It's a little easier if you do XP first, because the Suse installer can pickup your winxp installation and automatically configure dual boot.

It's in the boot directory of your installation media, if I remember correctly you need at least bootdisk1,2 and 3 plus one or more of the module disks(depending on the modules it needs to load)
