A few install questions

Hi There.

I've got a retail copy of Suse 8.0 Professional that I want to install to a PC that has Windows already on it. I want to boot Linux and Windows together, but since Suse 8.0 still uses LILO, and I find GRUB easier to set up, I'm totally stumped. Also, the partitioning section is more confusing than Diskdrake, and even the partitioning program on Suse 9.0. Can anyone give me a few pointers please? Thank you
