Fresh Install of SUSE 10.3 Need Help:

Fellow Penguins,
I have come to the conclusion that i need to fresh install SUSE10.3 on my machine. I have 2 x 160GB SCSI Hard disks available, which i will be formatting during the fresh install. I would like to leave 100 GB free for other distributions (testing etc...) How do i specify that during the Fresh install in the Expert Partition mode thingy ??

Just create x number of empty partitions (100/x GB each). You don't need to specify their purpose to Suse. Just leave them unmounted.

plenty of hard drive

In the thingy, select the line with the curser then select 'create' and follow the instructions on the left hand side.On one of your drives there should be more than enough to put on several versions of linux.It should suggest partition arrangememts anyway, these maybe best to go with.
