They also have a general brief install guide to lend the new guy some comfort.
Ok I am answering this before reading the rest of the thread Soooo..
yes SUSE will dual boot just fine.. After windows is installed then install SUSE. It will let you read/write fat & fat32 partitions, read from NTFS. The writing part is a little shaky from what I've heard.. If you want to run windows games under linux then you want transgamings cedega. I have an eval copy, cause I wanted to see if Civ3 Conquest would run.. It does so I'll probably subscribe (~5.00 a month).. For other windows programs you can try wine, which comes with SUSE. www.winehq.con
has more info.. If you absolutly need office (I prefered open office even when I ran a windows box).. then look at crossover...
I am now windows free.. I loaded SUSE 9.1 on my desktop so both machines are 9.1 (laptop & desktop)...
For easy upgrading of the system take a look at apt & synaptic.. Lets you easily update just about all the software.
