i have searched and searched everywhere (and I mean everywhere!) on the internet to find a simple, step-by-step, noob-friendly guide to installing opensuse 12.2 alongside win 7 in a dual boot configuration but to no avail. Can anyone help me out please? I am a 99% of the time a win 7 user but I do like to 'dabble' in linux. I have never understood why some linux distros mention absolutely nothing on how to install alongside windows; yet ubuntu, linuxmint, fedora, pclinuxos to name but a few make it very easy. This just adds more weight to those who think that linux is just for geeks!
