A friend of mine has a computer loaded with M$ Windows. She would like

partitioning (and whether SuSE will do the job for her or whether she
should use Partition Magic). Where is there a guide that I can give her
that will answer her questions?

Best regards,

I have installed SUSE 9.0 and SUSE 10.0 in VMWare using 4 GB virtual disks. I do development using C++ and not much more with each one. Depending on what she wants to do with it and wether she may decide to do most her work under Linux, 10 Gb might be a suitable size. YMMV.


About how much empty space is needed for M$ Windows to function properly? I ask because one of the things I think she will have to do is partition her HD so that there is room for installing Linux.
