Suse 2000


i have a Win 2000 machine.I tried to install Suse 9.1 personal
but it only asked me to choose the main partion and it automatically
choose the Swap Partition which was a partion with some important file
& i lost the files but luckly i have a back-up.
And then i found that it does not have the multi-boot feature like
that of Mandrake 10.1.Due to which i was not able to load my win 2000.

Pls tell me how to install suse so that i can choose the primary &
swap partition & will be able to use my win 2000 also.

I'm really not sure about SuSE 9.1, but I do know that 9.2 allows you to multi-boot. I'm guessing earlier versions must allow for the same, as well. I read all your post above, but am still confused by a few things. When you were offered the opportunity to resize your current partition, did you choose that option? Also, where did you place your MBR?

suse was my first linux and i have really no idea as to what all i did exactly.
But later, i installed Mandrake and it went smoothly,but for some reason i don't feel comfortable with it.
Did u say the Suse 9.2 allows multi booting.....

For those attempting to dual boot with Suse 9.1, it is very important to read this prior to starting -
