    You need to have a partition ready for SUSE to go into. Qtparted on Knoppix can safely resize your partitions.
    When you install SUSE, either install the bootloader to the root partiton or don't install a bootloader.

    Then you will need to edit your grub.conf file in FC.
    Add an entry like this,
    title SUSE
    kernel (hd0,3)/boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda4
    initrd (hd0,3).boot/initrd

    You will need to edit the partitions to suit your needs.
