keeping a partition while installing new distro
ok right now i am have a windows (video games) and ubuntu (every thing else) partion. i have 2 questions
1.i would like to change my distro to something else. Im thinking about using SuSE. i only have about 4 months experence on linux, and want to go to try something new. Any recomendations considering my experence.
2. i have the windows partition i don't want to lose windows besides the games i have information i cant lose but i do back it up so im safe if something goes happens wrong. is there any way to change my distro and not lose windows.

basically just do not delete anything that says NTFS or FAT32.. everything else you can wipe and re-partition/reformat.. Lilo or grub will pick up the patition automatically after the install and you should be good to go.
