    Thanks for the instructions. I have most of my stuff backed up, so I can
    feel fairly relaxed about all this.I also have a few spare hard drives
    with windows or Suse 10.3 installed kicking around that I can just throw
    in and go. I can get what I need off my hard windows partition that way,
    if whatever happens prevents me from running windows also. I will do
    whatever works. I can upgrade properly later if I need to. I'm glad it's
    the holidays and I have some spare time. Thanks again.

    A live cd like mepis with a root login is good for picking files up from
    just about any drive, I think the suse cd will do it to.

    It didn't work. I couldn't boot into Linux when I finished. I am getting
    rather tired now and non-functional. So I'm going to sleep and fix this
    in the morning, perhaps by installing 11.1. We'll see. It was
    complaining about partitions not being mounted and stuff like that. I
    unplugged the computer and restarted, then booted to windows. I have a
    program called Explore2fs on my windows side of things and it tells me
    my files in the Linux partition are still there. This is good. Would I
    lose them if I install 11.1 on top of what I have there now? Thanks
    again for all the help.

    You can keep your /home as is, do not format during a new install. Use
    the same username. That will keep all your user settings and files.

    But you will have to re-install all your 3rd party applications, you
    know, all the multi-media stuff etc..
