    You need to partition the disk in advance.
    How much ram do you have in this machine?
    If you have a decent amount of ram, 350 MB or more, I wouldn't bother with a swap partition if I were you.
    So hopefully you will just need to make 4 equal partitions.
    Install W2k first, this is important.
    I would recommend installing Suse last as Suse does the best job of seeing other linux distros and adding them to your boot menu, setting up a multiboot.
