removing suse 9.1 from my laptop.. how ??

Hi all... after insta;;ing suse on my laptop (together with windows XP) i had alot of problem getting the modem, usb ports, video card...etc to be recognized by suse! and lost half of my hard disk space!

I would like now to remove the suse from my laptop and install it in a stand alone PC with suse only...

What I wanna ask here is how to remove the suse from my laptop without losing any data on the XP ?
I though of "partition magic" but i dont know if this would work !
so any help ?

Thanx all

Boot to a recovery console in XP and run 'fixmbr', from within XP go to Disk Management and remove the partitions set up by SuSE.
