Smile Dual booting Windows XP with SuSe linux 9 on laptop

Hi Respected Masters ,
I am having one Lenovo Laptop (N100 0768-AQ1) , Intel centrino duo 1.73 Ghz , 512 MB RAM , 80 GB HDD.

I am currently having 4 partitions , 20 gb + 10 gb + 10 gb + 40 gb into it , with windows xp professional installed on the first partition.

I recently had 3 Cds of SuSe linux 9 and want to install it on my laptop , dual with my windows xp.

I had done backup of all the docs , files from all drives and am ready to sacrifice D: or E: or F: but dont want to install XP again as it is having many softwares installed.

kindly provide me a guide to

Install SUSE Linux on my laptop when windows xp is already installed without tampering with windows xp.

Help is deeply appreciated.

Thanks & Regards
Puneet Jain

SuSE 9 was released when? 2003 I think. It will not work on modern hardware.
