I have a hard disk of 20 GB, it has four partitions (5 GB each one). I installed Windows ME in my hard disk and in the last partition I decided install Linux Suse 6.3. I boot the computer from the CD ROM unit and inserted de first CD (are six CD´s), next, the Linux´s installation program asked me where I wanted to install Linux and I choosed the last partition, it did not ask me for the LILO configuration, it did not ask me for the kind of software for installing and did not ask me the CD number 4 and the CD number 6 (Why?). When the installation program finished it said: "Succesfully installation" (or something like that) and I could use the KDE desktop for some time, when i decided shotdown the computer I Could not! and I had to reset the computer. Now when I turn on my computer it is initializing with Windows ME and I can found Linux Suse, the Windows´ Explorer and the DOS do not reconigze the last partition. I read the installation manual but there propose some solutions that I could not do. I want to work with Linux but now I can not. I need information about how to solve this trouble and how can I choose the operating system when the computer is initializing or booting.

Thank you very much, I wait for an answer.
