If you want to completely remove SuSe, just delete the partitions associated with it.

About your drivers, the install program will assign you a generic radeon driver, you can find the latest drivers on the ATI website ( with instructions on how to install them.

If you are not comfortable with doing it in Linux you can do it from Windows as well. Just get some partitioning software such as Partition Magic (which I find easiest to use for newbies) and simply delete the partition as "netmask" suggests.
