Linux Suse on Pentium IV and Dual boot

Hi there!! I have a pentium 4 with 2.66 intel processor, and asus motherboard.The chipset of the motherboard is intel also. It has also a 512 memory and a 128 AGP video card. I wanted to install a suse 9 on the pc. But I have an existing OS on that pc. The OS is XP home on a SATA 40 HDD and it is partitioned in 2(20 and 20). I have also another disk on that pc which is located on the primary IDE controller. That HDD is used by OS. Now, I have another 10 gig HDD(IDE). Iwanted to install a suse 9 on that disk. I wanted to make a dual boot for xp and suse 9. How am i going to do that? Can I do it with grub?DO I need specical steps/procedure to perform to do this? Please help me on this. Thanks.

Best Regards,

But I recommend you install the hdd into the system.
Boot the Fedora System Medium DVD or 1st CD then start the Install process
FC will recognize Windows XP and joins it to the grub automaticly.
