Sorry I guess I meant just make it blank or whatever the default is for
a clean empty partition.

What I'm confused about is in the users guide it mentions you
can set up separate partitions for /opt, /home, /usr, etc. Do I need to
do this? Should I do this? and if so do I use partition magic to do this
or do I do this through the suse install on the empty partition? Do I
use partition magic to make the swap partition also or will the suse
installation ask me?

Thanks again
