    well, you can do it like so:
    1. create an empty partition for windows or use a new drive. (if using a new drive, set it to be primary master).
    2. boot windows and install it to the required partition or drive.
    3. boot using SUSE install cd/dvd and reinstall grub to MBR of primary master drive to enjoy dual booting.
    Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.

    do you know of any good partitioning programs besides qtparted because qtparted requires libc.so.6 that would screw up like 60 of my programs?
