"I want to dule boot SuSE 9.0 and Win2k, I when I was installing SuSE yesterday it formatted my Hard Drive.
Does any one know how to stop this happening with out using a Partition Maneger?"
During the SuSE installation do not use the SuSE partitioning defaults. Instead go into the advanced partitioning screen and tell the SuSE installer in detail how to partition your drive and which partitions to format and which partitions not to format.
Be prepared. Create a LifeBoat CD.
