    Post back the full results of fdisk -l
    Also, the results of "mount" and "ls /windows" would be helpful as well.

    this is the full feeback from fdisk -l
    Code:
    Disk /dev/sda: 200.0 GB, 200049647616 bytes
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 24321 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
    
       Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
    /dev/sda1               1         131     1052226   82  Linux swap / Solaris
    /dev/sda2   *         132       24321   194306175   83  Linux
    
    Disk /dev/sdb: 200.0 GB, 200049647616 bytes
    255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 24321 cylinders
    Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
    
       Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
    /dev/sdb1               1       24321   195358401    7  HPFS/NTFS
    windows should be on the c drive along with suse...the d drive is supposed to be an extra drive. i'm not too sure what partition was for windows....I think i did format the windows partition and in that case i can't get it back, can i?

    It does indeed look like it's gone

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but it looks like you formatted it. You could pay a data recovery company thousands to get it back if you really want. Or you could just accept the loss and reinstall windows.

    Yes, it really does look like you screwed up windows and can't get it back. I'd suggest when installing multiple OS's install windows first, then the other OS's.

    Now since you have multiple drives and such, it would be wiser if you learned to use SUSE's advanced partitioning tool. see this thread on using the advanced partitioning tool in suse.
    Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.
