sda7 was to be the swap; sda8 root (ext4), and sd9 home (ext4). sda1
is Windows/C; sda2 is Windows/D. I suspect the reason for using 7, 8,
and 9 is that this is the third try, and that the first one set up 3,4
and 5. The Windows partition appears to have been correctly shrunk,
and Windows will still boot. The installation suggests these three
linux partitions be set up (and gives me the chace to alter them), so
my guess is that there is space there but unpartitioned.

As far as I know, W7 creates extra partitions for itself besides C and
D, which will be /dev/sda1, /dev/sda2 and /dev/sda3. If it creates all
as primary, you could only proceed with a secondary and some additional
logical drives. A max of 4 primary partitions are allowed. I normally
edit the proposed partitioning. Best is if you post the partition map
proposed at install with openSUSE 11.4.
Reading this beforehand should answer most questions:
