Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Ummm, can you get your Suse CD? That is really the easiest way. Or how about a Knoppix CD? You can boot knoppix, mount your Suse "/" partition, and chroot to it. The you can edit your lilo.conf to reflect Windows, and run lilo to get it back into your MBR.
But you really need something like a boot disk to get back into your Suse....
First about your bootloader: leave everything as it is and use your other operating system to connect to the web, and get the SuSE 9.2 ISO's, at least the CD1.
In Nero's Burning ROM there is an option in one of the top-menu items that says "Burn image...". When prompted select the SuSE ISO en burn it to disk.
Then reboot, make sure your BIOS is set to boot from CD. You will arrive in a menu with an option "Boot from harddisk". To be completely clear: choose that option. Mind: your SuSE is booting now, but you need to fix the bootloader. Start Yast, go to System and click Bootloader. You don't want to change it, yet you want to rewrite it. To force that, change the Windows Menu Item into Blindos. You can leave it like this or change it back to Windows or Whinos, thing is that the bootloader now overrules XP, as it should. Init 6 and everything should be working fine.
You don't have to burn the other 4 or 5 ISO's. You can easily mount them automaticly by fstab entries, also from Yast and then add the mounted ISO's as InstallSource
Same problem took me a week; I corrupted my XP as well.
