Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have the CD version of Suse 9.2 and I have experience in installing Suse however... I have tried to install 9.2 on my notebook computer which is an HP Pavilion notebook preinstalled with XP Pro SP2. When it gives me the default installation config it states that it will delete the whole HD. I don't want that however. I have gone into the advanced config as well but it will not let me create a new partition. My guess is because it is SP2. But I have no option to uninstall it. I have also tried Partition Magic 8 but it still will not let me work with the HD. I know I can do it via floppy but again my notebook does not have that option. Please help!
I run my 9.2 on an WinXP SP2 box and did not find the install to be an issue. There might be something else going on here. You said that you used PM8 on that same HD. Will it allow you to make partitions and the like? If it will then SuSE should allow you to use them since even if it is not able to change a partition scheme due to conflicts, it will generally still allow you to format and install to existing partitions.
