I see your point here and I am so eager to install SuSE 9.1. It's just that I
can't ignore the messages I read. Especially I am concerned with this issue
about NTFS resizing described in this review:

http://www.eweek.com/article2/0,1759,1585840,00.asp

"During installation, SuSE offers the option of resizing an existing Windows
partition-including NTFS (NT File System) partitions-to make room for SuSE.
In one of our installs, we were able to resize an NTFS partition, but we were
then unable to boot into Windows. The procedure didn't appear to have damaged
the data stored on our Windows partition because we could access the data
through SuSE, but we were unable to get booted back into Windows. Use caution
with this feature, or leave it alone."

If this shoul dhappen to me how do I fix the problem? Linux is my primary OS
so I do not know much about Windows.
