Get VMware Workstation for Linux. Reserve the entire drive for SuSE (or
leave an XP partition around, though you'll rarely if ever use it once
you start using VMware). Use LVM to provide the several logical volumes
(~8GB)required by SuSE. The remaining space can be carved into logical
volumes as you later see fit. Do all your XP-hosted development work in
a virtual machine hosting XP plus whatever else is needed. FAT and NTFS
file systems can be accessed by both Linux and XP, and Samba can also be
used to expose an arbitrary Linux file system to a virtual machine
Once you start using VMware you'll wonder how you did without it.
1+GB of main memory is best, particularly for a development system.
