Installing suse9.1 in P3 system with 64MB memory

I tried to install Suse 9.1 to a Pentium3 system in which the memory is 64MB. While installing suse wanted me to provide some swap protion like "/dev/sda2". I do not know how to proceed. How do I have to proceed. In that system,out of 10GB harddisk, 4.1GB is C: (windows), 3.5GB is D: (windows) and the rest is not windows partition.
Please help me. Thanks in advance.
with regards,

Your Windows C & D drives (partitions) together use 7.6 GB - so 2.4 GB are left over for Linux (assuming that U are not resizing the D partition (possible if it is FAT32 filesysttem)) .

Id then say maybe a 160 MB swap partition & whatever is left over for the Linux root(/) partition .

You are using suSE 9.1 (great 2.4 based SuSE ) .. so I guess you know that 64 MB RAM & 10 GB will still mean a bit of a slow system.

Promotion follows : If SuSE is too slow for you I recommend
