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?

To list the partitions use the fdisk command
fdisk -l (that is a small L and you must be root)

The advantage of loading linux last is that you do not have to reinstall the boot loader.
