Just boot with redhat cd and get in the installer, when u get to the part to do the partitioning, do it manually and select your suse partition as root, and say yes to format.

Install grub into MBR and you should be able to boot winxp with it.
Yea you can format the suse partition afterwards, either within winxp (diskmgmt.msc) or redhat (/sbin/mke2fs)
