partitionig windows to install suse

Have 160G HDD with XP already installed and want to install Suse 9.2 . Have reached the partitioning stage of install but not sure how to proceed. Want to leave 80-100 G for windows and remainder for Linux . Options given onset up screen on partitioning are
* delete partition /dev/hda 1 149.0GB (HPFS/NTFS)
*create swap partition 1011.8MB on ?dev/hda1
*create root partition 148.0GB (dev/hda2 with reiser )
This does not look like what I want but I'm not confident enough to follow the non automated instalation /partition path.Can someone assist

Make sure you run defragmentation before staring the installation. YaST cannot defragment the windows drive and refuses to resize if there are fragments found back part of the partition.

I think this post would fit better in 'Novell/SUSE' than 'Linux from Scratch'.
