ok, here is the deal! I have a PC dual-booting opensuse 11 and xp. However, i got enough with suse i want to get rid of it badly, so i need a SAFE way to delete, erase the suse partion. Because i want to install (dual booting) mint instead of suse. It will be dual booting mint and xp. The problem is that i don't want to wipe out my xp partition (not for now). This my wife computer and she is doing a smooth transition into linux world So, please any advice will be gratly appreciated. I am planning to backup (image) my xp partition to be safe. Right now i am using grub with suse.
