Yes ! All linux uses ext 2 /3 and others.. Install in ext3 // Just reformat the Ubuntu partition using SUSE partitioner..

SUSE partitioner of DVD is a bit complex . so make sure you get everything right !

Resistance is Futile.
I have OpenSUSE 10.3 installed. How can I upgrade it to 11 from Digit's August DVD?
Boo tfrom August DVD, start install, after the agreement, you'll see an option "Update existing installation". Choose that.
PS: A fresh install would be better.

Arey yaar, i meant to say that, "because i have Ext2IFS softy installed in my XP".

And therefore i can see ext2 partition on my XP & that is my f:

I don't know much in this open source software world.

Another which i want to ask is how to install mplayer? I downloaded it from net. The file name is Mplayer-1.0rc2.tar.
When i double click it , it asks for unzipping. So how cud i install it??
And does mplayer supports all format??

use the package manager, System _> Add/remove programs -> Search for Mplayer and click on install

Never search for Linux software on the net.Whatever you need need is available in package manager[Ubuntu has Synaptic package manager].The tar.gz file you have includes the source code of Mplayer.

^^yes it would automatically recognise the presence of other operating systems. You also get the option of setting the one you want to set as default during installation

yes,
i have 15 GB free space for Suse11,
how to install with Ubuntu?

will new loader come with XP,Suse & Ubuntu options?

where to take care during installation?

Always take care while partioning!!
Even if openSUSE doesnt recognise other OS,then dont worry. It is just a matter of adding the entries in /boot/grub/menu.lst file.
You go ahead and install openSUSE and then take it from there.
