Dual Booting 9.2 64bit and Win Xp

I am intending to dual boot suse with win xp, i have tried before dual booting several different distros but i always seem to come up with problems trying to get into windows, i select windows in the boot selection menus, then i get a black acreen with a few words (chainloader +1 or something similar) now usualy it isnt a problem but as im in spain 4 the next 6 months and only have my laptop (AMD Aspire 1512LMi) usually i have my pc but i dont so i want to avoid probs

Thanks in Advance

(Edit) Some more information-The error i nearly always get with dual booting is similar (or the same) to this:

root (hd0,0)
Filesystem type unknown, partition type 0x7
chainloader +1

Could you post the output of fdisk, and etc/fstab.

Make sure your windows boot.ini file points to the correct partition for windows to boot.
