Not sure where to post this

Last night I made the switch and was trying to install a dual boot well it seems there is a glitch with suse 9.1 and win xp and partion settings

Before installing linux with a 2.6 kernel on an intended dual boot system, your hard drives must be set to LBA in the Bios, using the AUTO setting will result in disaster.

There is a fix for this except it wont work after you have installed linux and have tried to make the change in the bios.

A friend (who is a linux guru) worked on this for hours. The result of not having the correct bios settings resulted in a format

ps I am a mod over at pcpitop forums and yes we even have a linux forum
