Hello,

A computer has Ubuntu LTS installed in some of its memory, it is like:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Disk /dev/sda: 250.1 GB, 250059350016 bytes
255 heads, 63 sectors/track, 30401 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 16065 * 512 = 8225280 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x0001fe0c

Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 1 1861 14940160 83 Linux
/dev/sda2 1861 2371 4101120 82 Linux swap / Solaris
/dev/sda3 2371 4803 19530752 83 Linux

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Out of the 250 GB hard disk, it is using like :

/dev/sda1 = 15 GB (/) [Primary partition]
/dev/sda2 = 4.2 GB (swap ) [Primary partition]
/dev/sda3 = 20 GB (/home) [Primary partition]

Unallocated space = 211 GB

So in extended I have to install openSUSE 12.1 (211 GB), so how should
I install it in extended and how do I partition it such that it comes
as an option to be booted from Ubuntu menu? Is it possible? (Ubuntu is
using Grub 2 while openSUSE is using Grub Legacy).

Thanks
