compaq presario 1075

Hey Guys my girlfriends dad gave me one of his old laptops because my g/f's ex b/f messed it up. I fixed it and got win98 running smoothly but i want to install suse 9.0 either alongside or completely. My problem is that the laptop only has 32mb of ram and a 6 gig drive more than enough for 98 but seems to fal short for suse. It wants me to create a swappartition for yast but when i point it to /dev/hda1 it says there's an error trying to create the swapfile. what can i do?
