A boot menu with XP Microsoft and Suse seems impossible!


I can't obtain a boot menu with an XP os and a Suse os. Is that because XP use an NTFS system file?
Thank you for helping me a little.

If you have some free, unpartitioned space when you install SuSE, then SuSE will automatically use that free space during installation and it will automatically install a bootmenu, too.
If you do not have free space, you can probably shrink XP's ntfs partition to get some.
