I would simply run a new installation of SuSE, using the second harddisk
(/dev/hdb). (You'll be asked where to install the files during setup.)
As soon as everything works properly, you can delete the old partitions
(linux ans swap) on harddisk one. As root, run "cfdisk", delete all
partitions on /dev/hda except your win xp-partition.
Now you can decide, wether you want to use the free diskspace for win
xp, linux or even both (with fat32): Create a new partition for the
remaining disksize and choose your favorite filesystem. Write your
changes to your disk and exit cfdisk.
If you chose to use the new partition on harddisk one as Windows XP
NTFS, start Win XP and format drive D:
