Windows normally won't see a Unix/Linux partition (HDD).
As you guessed, there must be 'Nix on 40g drive. All you do is: Insert disc 1 and reboot. Suse (or most other Linux) will then install where you choose. Just accept
defaults unless you know better; i.e. 40G HDD, use entire disc, use Grub as bootloader, put MBR on head of WINDOWS
disc (important). Good luck. chuck
I have a HP P4 running windows XP PRO on a 80G HD.I added a 2nd HD 40G that I would like to run suse10.0.on. I have the 5 cd set to install suse with but xp does not regognize the 2nd HD although the HP recognized it at initial power up. It told me if I was running UNIX I would need to option the HD. How to I option the HD and make sure I get a dual operating system with SUSE10.0 only on the 2nd HD.I go into system set up F10 but it is a HP set up and will not allow me to see the HD's for partioning . I do not have a partioning CD to set up formatting etc, but the Disc 1 SUSE will partion a drive but I don't want it to screw up HD1 with XP on it. My other option is to put Linux on a 2nd computer but I don't realy want to do that for space consideration. The 40G hd is a used drive and must have had unix in it at one time.The hard drives are set up as cable select.
