    Alright, you have three primary partitions and one extended partition with three logical partitions? I didn't know there was a limit on logical partitions.
    What type of errors are you getting when you try to create your partition?
    If it's a space error, in Windows Right Click My Computer, Manage, Disk Management, Right-click on a parititon and shrink.

    i know almost nothing about win7, so someone else has to give you a direct answer, i can only point you here:

    which will give you _some_ help, until the Cavalry arrives..

    i don't have any extended partitions,
    by using partition manager softwares i gained about 100 gb unallocated spaces,and when i tried to create extended and swap partitions from that 100 Gb ,nothing was enable,i mean when i right click on that unallocated spaces, this is my real problem,and an other thing,
    is it possible to create required partitions from openSUSE setup?????without any loss of data?

    Like DenverD, I don't know a lot about Windows7 - and I cannot ride by the way. You don't create Extended *AND* swap. You might create swap *WITHIN* extended, meaning extended is just a container for all the logical partitions you might create, whenever you need more than 4. Yes you can do that from openSUSE setup. The best approach is to resize your Windows partition in Windows, because who else knows its own filesystem better than Windows? Once this is done, you can either leave the space unallocated, use a live system like PartedMagic to create the partitions in advance, create them manually in openSUSE setup or even let the setup create them for you (although I personally don't like this option). With most partitioning tools (including openSUSE partitioner) you don't create the extended partition. It gets created automatically when you add the first logical.

    Hmm ... I guess I'll have to add some debugging routines to my setups.

    Code:
    if [ "$GOD" ] ; then
    do something
    else
    do nothing
    fi
    or better (you never know)

    Code:
    if [ "x$GOD" == "x" ] ; then
    do nothing
    else
    do something
    fi
    Never mind. I'm just kidding. Enjoy dual booting Windows and Linux! (you'll find out which one is the most evil). And if you have other questions, may GOD help us provide adequate answers ...
