SuSE will reinstall Grub. If you wipe up your partition, of course! Otherwise it may again lead to smth nasty

Aren't you going to remove Drake? If not then be careful with Partitioner again. Specify partitions for both Linux OS in advanced partitioner. Otherwise, if you plan to remove Drake just format partition with EXT3
