I Want To Change From RedHat to SuSE 9.1 in A WinXP Pro. Dual Boot System

I think i said my problem in the subject itself. Yes, I want to remove RedHat 9.0 from my system and Install SuSE 9.1.

I'm currently using LiLo to boot into both Linux and Windows.

Partitions: 1 NTFS, 1 FAT32, 3 Linux Partitions.

What should I do? How?

I simply liked the simplicity of SuSE 9.1 personal (From LiveEval. CD). BTW, is SuSE 9.1 Personal (not the LiveEval CD) available for free download?

Hey one more thing... is there anyway to save a file created when using Live-Eval SuSE

Thanks and regards,

ISO images are not available for SuSE 9.1, however you can do an ftp install (YMMV). I bought mine and am glad I did. The manuals were worth it alone. As for how, simply backup your data, and insert the first disk in the installation and it will replace RH on your system. It will also detect the presence of windows and configure your bootloader appropriatly. It is a really easy install.

You can save files created while using the live eval disk by saving them to a hard drive partition, if mounted.

The SuSE FTP installation would work if you have a broadband connection.

I was never able to get it to start installing, it would always hang at the first part when it was booting the kernel to begin the install, but SuSE Live Eval did the same thing when i tried to use that, so you might have more luck than I did.
