I am installing OpenSUSE 11.4. The system I have had an older version of OpenSUSE on it, but then I installed Windows in one of the partions. The partions look like this at installion:
Name Size F Type FSType Mount
sda1 22.01GB HPFS/NTFS NTFS /windows/c
sda2 210.88 Extended
sda5 20 F Linux native EXT4 /
sda6 20 Linux native EXT3
sda7 170.87 Linux native Ext3 /home

My question is that I don't appear to be using sda2 for Linux and sda6 may be wasted. Is that true and if so, how can I fix it. I want to keep Windows on the machine.

A second question: When going through the install, the loader says that it will erase all partitions. Will it erase the windows partion? That I do not want. While I will be using Linux as my main OS, I still need Windows.

So, the installer will actually erase the Windows partition? That's not what I want. I'd like to keep that partion. The rest are from the earlier version of OpenSUSE and can be erased.

I'd like to assign the unused space to Linux so I can use it for user(s)'s data.
