First backup you,re data in case something goes wrong
Installing it self you have let say two options :
1) Make room for suse
2) Let suse do the dirty work
if you choice for the first one if suse come with the install proposal choice the expert option and tell here to use the free space only
If you go for the second one suse will shrink the space use by XP so that she can install her self
BE careful that XP his mention in her proposal , mostly in a message such as ¨Set mount point c:/windows¨
and of course also how much space she left for XP

Good luck

Here is a link to the openSUSE documentation Wiki. There should be more than enough information to help you get openSUSE installed. Take notes as you go (especially error messages, if any) and come back for help if you run into problems.
