    I have a duel boot system XP & Mandy 10
    I have 2 seperate hard drives, XP is on the C drive and Mandrake 10 is on the D drive.
    They are both runningt great at the moment, what I want to know is can I install SuSe to the D drive and will it find its own partitions and will it affect LILO the bootloaderor will it just appear as another option to boot to.

    It should overwrite the MBR with it's own version of LILO/GRUB.
    I'm not sure if it performs auto-detection of other existing OS's, but if it doesn't, make sure you add the Windows and Mandrake installations in before you complete setup and reboot.

    Thanks for your quick reply.

    How do I add XP & Mandy before I complete set up?.

    If they're not automatically detected, you need to add them manually, either using menus (if they exist), or editing the lilo.conf file manually before installing the bootloader. I haven't ever setup SuSE specifically, so these are just general tips that apply to all linux installations.

    You might want to take a look at these SuSE support pages:
