multi boot win/linux?

How can I multiboot windows 2000pro and SuSE 9.1 personal?
I want to get a 60gb hd and make a 30gb partion for windows and a 30gb partion for SuSE. How do I do this? Or I want to get a 80gb hd and split it in two again.

I don't have the harddrive yet or SuSE but I want this information for future refrence.

And also I am only 12 yrs old so I don't want to know these super long cheatcodes or whatever. I don't know any commands for UNIX or any of that stuff. I now DIR, MEM, HELP, and TREE for MSDOS but thats all I know.

It's okay if they're are some of them but don't expect me to figure it out.

I have knoppix 3.6. I've tried to install it and it always talks about a SWAP partion? What ever that means.

I've used QTParted on knoppix for the partions.

Please HELP!!!

I am a

Reply to me for any questions.

Well I don't have the drive yet but I want to know how to do it NOW!

Read this link. I want to make the exact same thing but a little different. Just some buttons and fans though.

I will make this when I am out the door or when I'm 15 or something. I'm 12 remember.
