I'm trying to install SuSE 9.0 on a machine that already has Windows XP on it. Here are my current partitions:
C: ~30 GB
D: ~40 GB
E: ~20 GB
Currently C: is my Windows OS partition, while D: holds my documents, mp3s, videos, etc (everything currently in NTFS). I'd like to install SuSE in the space that is currently my E: drive, but how would I go about this?
I went into the YaST setup, and it gave a default partition setup, but I rejected it since it involved splitting the C: partition and installing Linux there. I want to manually tell it to install in the E: space. Can I dual-boot properly if I install Linux that way? Also what will I need to mount in terms of directories such as /; /usr; /boot; etc?
Don't worry, I'll make sure to backup my data too. Still if I can do this without screwing anything up, I'd prefer to do it that way.
