    Oh, no ..


    No - I want to keep SuSE.

    When the install comes to the choosing of the partition to place Ubuntu on - would it be the same one that has SuSE on it? I did not proceed any further as I was concerned that I would be displacing SuSE.

    Right now I have three partitions of fat 32 for XP - and three for SuSE.

    One option is to boot into Suse and use Yast to repartition it (just make the suse partition something like 10 gb smaller, then format these 10 gb with something like ext3 or reiserFS). Basically, Ubuntu sees your linux partitions and would like to install itself to one of them. You could also use ubuntu to repartition Suse, doing the same thing as I mentioned (making the suse partition smaller, giving some space for ubuntu). Then when you go to install ubuntu, just point it to the new partition which you've made for it. As for the swap partition, let ubuntu use Suse's, they are friendly and like to share
