tri boot with 2 linux distros and winxp

I have two hardrives one for win xp and the other foe suse 9.2 I would like to install Red Hat 8 or Mandrake 10 but not sure what to do while trying to put mandrake on the drive with winxp I had to free up dpace first giving 15 gigs for win and leaving 15 gig for linux but now I have 9 partitions for linux and not sure where my suse is I do not want to lose suse but want to put the other distro on the windows drive Ibelieve when I resized my partitions I may have put suse on the windows drive. How can I be sure that suse is on the 20 gig drive by itself and not some of it on drive a and some on drive b I am really confused, and need some help here. I am not sure what other info you may need to help me if you can tell me in simple terms what other info you want I will try to get it. Thanks for taking time to help me

Can't you see it through the windows disk management tool (it won't tell you its ext2 or whatever, but you know it's 20 G, so you know what to look for)
Or boot into suse and check out your partitions through there
