    Just install SuSE in the free space. Don't create another Swap partition (the one that was created for Fedora can be used by SuSE). SuSE will normally add necessary enties to it's grub configuration, so when it's installed and you reboot your computer, you will get a boot menu with SuSE and whatever other OS(s) that exists on the hard drive (Fedora in your case).

    hi kracker !!

    i think you already installed FC5 and SuSe. from /boot/grub/grub.conf file copy details of FC5 kernel.
    details are something like this.
    Code:
    title Fedora Core
            root (hd0,6)
    	kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.15-1.2054_FC5 ro root=LABEL=/ rhgb quiet
    	initrd /initrd-2.6.15-1.2054_FC5.img
    in suse -- yast -- grub, add a new entry for FC5 and write the contents you copied. reboot.
