    Boot with your winxp, the winxp installer will see the linux partitions as unknown partitions, just delete them all, and allocate the space to windows and install. Everything can be done within the winxp installer.

    Or if you do this on a regular basis download the excellent Gparted boot cd.
    Loads and runs a lot quicker than all the start up screens of XP

    yes ! GParted is best option... sometimes Xp installer CDs doesn't even boot up on dual boot machines.......

    Getting XGL on SuSE is fairly easy. Look in opensuse wiki http://en.opensuse.org/Using_Xgl_on_SUSE_Linux
