What you should do is:

Use some software like Ranish Partition Manager to create another partition.
Now install SuSe on the new partition.

This is the easiest, most hassle free way.

Be on safer side Do this,

Go to ur friends Home(* don't forget to take ur HDD with U),
Backup all ur data in there system,
Come back partetion ur disk accordingly(* one more tip--It`s never a good idea to hv just one or partetion of ur 80GB HDD even not of 40GB HDD)
so make 4partetion at-least(*u`ll ind spped bost up in ur system--nd it hv a certaine logic),
then left 15GB unparted so that linux can take care of that.........

Hope u got it.......
