aborted SUSE 9.2 installation reduced hard disk size

I was experimenting with installation of SUSE Professional 9.2 and did not agree with the suggested partition sizes for Windows XP vs Linux, so I aborted the installation. In theory, no changes were made to the computer. In fact, the 160 GB hard disk, all previously accessible to Windows XP Home, has now shrunk to 36 GB, and I can not get Windows XP to see the rest of the hard disk. I am afraid to proceed too much further for fear of doing permanent damage to the existing data/programs, and I don't really want to reinstall 19 GB of data/programs! Any suggestions?

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.
