importing my documents from windows to linux

How do I import all my old windows files from my documents on an external usb hard drive to my new opensuse 11 hard drive?

it depends on your usb hard fs.
in case of FAT there won’t any troubles
in case of NTFS you need installed ntfs-3g on your SUSE.
home directory in Linux is /home/user_name

My old hard drive is formatted ntfs, my new one has the standard opensuse default install.

Well, you only need ntfs-3g if you want to write back to the drive. To
only import from windows you should be fine from the start (or at least
I was on SLED 10).

Good luck.

ntfs-3g is included with openSuSE 11, and if a dual-boot with Windows NT 4 or later is the configuration, ntfs-3g is part of the default install. (I dual-boot with Vista, and I sometimes access documents on the NTFS partition from oS 11; right now, I’m burning an ISO in Brasero from the NTFS partition).

Plug in the hard drive, and openSUSE may very well auto-mount the drive. And then just drag-and-drop files over.
