I'm completely linux newbie. I got a PC(32 bit) from my friend that has Fedora & Ubuntu on single HDD.Now I need to install Suse on the same HDD without destroying other distros.Please let me know what are the prerequisites for this? & how to do this step by step.
I'm not sure how the before installation is done?? I'm not sure about grub editing/tweaking.Plz guide me clearly.If you need any additional information plz let me know.At present installation of SUSE is very important
Suse has a good graphical installer , you just need enough space for it,it will configure itself,without destroying other distros, So go on,follow the steps of installation carefully..
may I know what open suse is proving which is not fulfilled by ubuntu and fedora..
Hey you can save more space by deleting one of the swap.. as one swap partition can be used by all linux distro..
as there is running single OS at a time ,you can increase your hard disk space by deleting one of the swap ..
if you are afraid of loosing the partition of existing linux try manual partition in which you can select at least an empty partition (no filesystem in it) with a size of 6 gb minimum ....add the existing swap as swap....
look carefully the partition in which you are going to install suse is not / for the fedora or ubuntu...
