    I have another message thread on the same subject here. Why not read through it and then ask any more questions that you might have.

    How many partitions do you have? You can only have a total of 4 primary partitions. One of those can be an extended partitions where you can setup many logical partitions. By default OpenSUSE wants 3 partitions swap root and home. You can go to the advanced mode and setup the partitioning as you would like. Note without knowing exactly how things are set on your machine it is hard to give specific advice. If you can boot into a Linux based CD and supply the output of fdisk -l it would help us see what you have now.
