Question oSUSE ( not letting me see any Mandriva2007 (2.617.5) partitions

Allowed DrakX partitioner default use of free space, I did not custom resize or share swap or /home partitions with openSUSE10.1 remastered, which I am using now on my NB/LT.
M$xpPROsp2 Disk Management shows that the new install of Mandriva2007 used all free and formed partitions 6.25, 1.26. 3.88 GB. M07 default BootLoader was LILO which I was able put in boot sector of / partition (vs MBR or Other).
M07 is not a choice for boot/loading of course! I guess I need to edit grub.conf?

Ran Konqueror / My computer in oSUSE, it does not show any of the Man 07 parts. Was Not able to see which format used by default.

fdisk -l appears OK, partition table entries are not in disk order, as M07 Start End data sda11, 12, 13 fits between sda6 & sda7, since it was formatted later.
*!* 17 Nov edit section *!*

Guess I must mount the M07 parts before oSUSE will recognize, or is the kernel difference a cause of not being able to see or access other Linux parts?

Yes, all you should need to do is mount the partitions. If you want to mount them any time you boot Suse, edit fstab and make an entry for / and /home.
