When you install linux, it will display the layout of your disks. Just format the entire disk and install it over the same partition as your windows OS.

Code:

You mean like a kazaa type of program?

Itunes iirc runs on linux platform. allows you to Download songs for a cheap price. If you're asking for software programs that download them illegally, you're asking in the wrong place.

Limewire is almost identical to Kazaa, except no ads. You have to have java installed though, but I'm pretty sure that comes with SUSE.

If it doesn't come with Java, then you can just grab it from java.sun.com.
