Something similar should be in your installed manual.
If you're curious about it boot up from disk1 and play around. This probably won't help in this situation. I was only trying to explain my post in the earlier thread.
Something isn't making sense here. The disk order your describing doesn't agree with what Suse is seeing. If Suse is actually hd0 and windows hd1 there is a trick called diskswapping where something like this would be added to the windows entry

map (hd1) (hd0)
Maybe someone else knows if that should be used in this case.
My dual boot has been Suse/Slackware for nearly a year, so the windows
install knowledge is pretty rusty.WARNING: I may be telling you more than I know !
