SuSE 9.1 + Win XP - is this ok ?


i read about the bug that can cause some problems with win xp

can i do this ?

using a old knoppix version (kernel 2.4)

1. partition manully using fdisk
2. format the partition as riserfs/ext3
3. tell suse installer to install without formating to the above partition (thereby avoiding using the parted tool)
4. install GRUB to MBR

is this safe ?

i just want to be sure before proceding...
