Replacing Linux Mint with OpenSuSE


Hello1

I am wery new in Linux.
I am using Linux Mint for two weeks - trying before Ubuntu and Kubuntu installed inside Windows(dont like it and removed it).
Mint is installed in dual boot with Windows - i have two hard disks 200 GB(have two partitions - 50 GB for Windows and programs and 150 GB for data storage) and 160 GB(also have two partitions - 50 GB on wich is installed Mint and 90 GB for data storage).

Mint used half of 50 GB(25 GB) partition on 160 GB disk.

I want to replace Mint with SuSE.
Possibly on the same partition where is Mint now.
How to remove Mint?
Is this possibly during instalation or must be Mint removed(unistalled?) previusly?

I looking for system requirements for SuSE - dont find it(maybee just dont lookin enough?)

My comp

Pentium 4 1,6 Ghz
768 MB RAM
Graph. card Nvidia 64 MB ram

On this system i am runnig Windows 7 Ultimate(work fine Except Aero and games)
Mint working OK on this.

Is this configuration Enough for running SuSE with Gnome desktop?

Thank You for answers

Not looking enough, seems like the right answer; it was the first response in the search engine that I tried. Which search engine were you using?

Just tell Suse to use the partition(s) previously used for mint. Of course, if you get the partition wrong, you'll erase the data on the partition, so you want to back any valuable data up before you do anything.

Well, it'll work. It'll bog down heavily if you try to have lots of apps open at the same time, and would be better if you had more ram, and it might work better with XFCE, but it will work.

Yes, it is right answer.
Found it, Google rules!!

Yes, it is slow(i have installed SuSE with KDE desktop) but is still much faster than W7 Ult.
