Yes, I was left a Linux (Suse 10.2) desktop computer, and have had no luck in finding files so I can make it a dual boot system adding Windows XP.
Now I need to know how to make a backup of this OS so I can remove Linux, install Windows XP and then do the dual boot with Linux?

What do you mean by you can not find files to make it dual boot?

Depends on how the drive is partitioned to know how easy it would be to resize and install windows. Yes the current bootloader will be overwritten but it
is easy to restore. It is also easy to boot linux from windows.

partimage might be an easy way to backup your system as a beginner.
