boot problem in suse 10.3
I had windows xp sp2. I installed suse 10.3 and it was working fine. the i installed a fresh copy of windows xp sp2. when i restarted it booted directly into windows. I inserted the suse 10.3 dvd and as said in one of the help manuals which came along with it i tried to use the new installation-> repair->yast... well something like that. but it didn't work.
Then I just tried new installation-> update. After a while it restarted and the menu with options came:
1.open suse 10.3
4.suse xen(something like that and this came after I used the update option from the dvd).
now when I get into any of the three it asks for root password and once i enter it it log in and something comes up as
i am able to see my files and all but how do i make the login proper as before?
(repair filesystem) # fdisk -l
when i used the command fidsk -l; something like this came up.

I didn't include all the details because I thought these shoud be sufficient.
