    Default Advice on partitioning

    I am in a dual boot with Ubuntu and win 7 wireless.
    When I install 11.3 I no longer have Ubuntu. Is there a process or procedure to assure multiple boot
    while I attempt to connect suse to my network

    you can do 2 things

    1 boot with ubuntu live cd to restore grub 2 & update the grub with "sudo update-grub" command.
    Or

    2 Go to yast->Boot Loader & then add ubuntu on the list.

    there are some slightly tricky parts, i think.......have a good look
    here before you begin, then ask more if needed:

    and, as always you should already be making backups of important data,
    if you have not been then a GREAT time to begin is before you get into
    the middle of something that might eat your lunch..

    Or add Ubuntu to your openSUSE boot menu with updategrub (not update-grub): updategrub for openSUSE Legacy Grub (not update-grub!)

    The trick while installing openSUSE after Ubuntu would have been to prevent openSUSE from writing a generic boot code in MBR, as shown in the last of the following pictures:

    * and then run update-grub under Ubuntu to add openSUSE to the menu.
