The easiest thing to do is to re-install Suse and this time make sure that you select to take over the entire disk when installing. It will deleate all of your partitions, including Windows.

By deleting or formatting the partition that windows is installed on

Have you tried duct tape and a hammer? hehe

Seriously, this is a good question. I'm a newbie myself with a dual boot. And in time hopefully I'll be able to make the full switch.

I would think that going into the partition manager would allow you to remove the windows partition and repartition it for linux.

Personnaly id just change the filetype of the partition to ext2 and mount it.
Everything on the partition will be automaticaly deleted.
