Default Suse 11 On XP

I am using windows XP. And I wanted to install Suse 11 on the same machine.
the partition of IDE Drive are as under.

C - NTFS Formated - Left For Suse Installation
D - NTFS : Windows XP Installed
D - NTFS : For Data

Can any one guide me how to tell Suse to Install on C & use only C for linux partition.

Thanks
Jainesh

ok mate this hows its goes

step 1 . BACKUP all UR FILES YOU CANT LIVE WITHOUT!!! < do it just as a fail safe >

step 2

ok when u going to install suse it will partation the drive for you

ok say u got 500 GB HDD
150 GB C:\
150 d:\
about 180 gb free

suse like all linux OS will use an owns file system and cant be installed to like c:\
it will need that partion of space to be edited up

into two parts
one for the OS < root level file system > /
and one for swap / memory

sorry cant be much more help than that ... haven't had to install any linux and XP system together ...

but : once it installed will you / should be able to pick to boot into XP from the boot load menu

zcworld: I just tend to think that step1 is unnecessary. You should have ALWAYS up-to-date backups. You never know when your hardware just fails.
