more detailed answer...

1) Before installing SuSE, create a mandrake boot floppy for your current

2) Install SuSE. This, of course overwrites the mandrake boot loader on your
hard drive. That is why you created the floppy in step 1.

3) After SuSE is installed, boot to mandrake from your floppy. Update the
mandrake boot loader by adding a new entry for SuSE, and write it to your hard
drive. This will overwrite the bootloader installed by SuSE in step 2, but will
give you back all you had before, and a new entry for SuSE.
