Hi, I'm a newbie to linux and I'm running into issues with installing suse.
Basically when it came to formatting, i told it to shrink my existing windows partition (I have 2 hard disks, 1 80 GB with windows xp and another 250 GB with no OS just NTFS partition)
Instead what it did is reserve 1 GB for swap space on my 2nd HD and about 150 GB for the root lesving 70 GB for NTFS which is not what i want.
The installation itself didn't even work, after doing CD 1 when it came to the loader it said error 21. But after doing something (can't remember what, at least i get the boot screen and can get into windows. If I try to enter Linux i get a grey screen and asks for login and password which i didn't specifu so basically I can't even go into linux.
Any ideas as to how to fix this mess. Ideally I would have liked to have a separate parition for linux (root and swap) but not 150 GB as I want the rest for NTFS. Is there a way I can undo my previous installtion or unistall suse altogehter?
And how should I parition my hard drives to do this?
