The following are the steps to be taken to setup a dual boot:
1) install MS Win??
2) install SuSE
3) reboot - you will be given the choice as to which os to load
It is indeed that simple - SuSE will detect the XP install as it is
loaded. It will automatically set up the dual boot loader so you have a
choice when you boot up. It will also make a mount point so you can read
the MS partition while in Linux.
