I'm new about this dual boot thingy but I have heard about this before already. I am planning to install OpenSuSE as suggested to me by my colleague.

I am wondering how would I install it without overwriting my old OS, Windows 7 Ultimate. Or is it automatically installed without having my old OS removed?

I have searched about this, and found this link. Can you verify if this is actually the way to do dual-boot? I need to be very careful on doing this. :)

P.S. I am not definitely sure if I placed this thread on the right section. If not, please move this in the proper section. Sorry and thank you!

Here is another link with information about dual booting and the Linux GRUB Loader, and things to do to avoid problems. I think if you follow the instructions for dual booting windows on the tweakhound page exactly you'll be ok. I provided another link for comparison purposes and maybe answer other questions you might have that weren't answered on your link.

Both links emphasize backing up before doing anything, if it goes bad you can always go back to where you started.
