Suse 9.3 & win xp...installed normally but..
After reading a lot of helpful topics in here i successuflly installed after 4-5 times of formats...both suse 9.3 and windows xp ..
The procedure i followed was that : (in the case that it is needed for the answer i wanted)
First of all i installed Suse ..in a hard disk , i made a partition inside the YaST about 10 GB... installation was succesfull and i was enjoying the graphic environment of SUSE..
Next i tryed to install the windows xp to the other partition of the same hard disk (25 GB)...i format it from cd of windows FAT32 and i install the windows XP normally there......
When i rebooted my PC the booting was immediately at win xp and not a choice...i finished the installation of win xp....
The i put again the suse cd and i a running the repair of the installed suse..
It corrected some errors...i reboot the PC and then i have normally the choice of linux or windows.. well windows are running perfectly but SuSe starts in something like a dos-mode (i have to type the commands as dos) and not in the graphical design.....
what do i have to do now in order to have the linux to run in graphic design ?
Thank you and sorry for my bad English..
I confess - guilty as charged.
Ahh, ... well ..... actually, you can log on to SuSE-9.3 as user "root".
