Default Installing Knoppix

I have had problems installing Debian before, and everytime I tried to install it, it screwed up windows. I am now going to install SuSe and I don't want to screw up windows because I have a lot of things that I need on here. I am trying to do a Dual Boot (XP and Suse). Can someone tell me how to do this? Thanks so much.

Athlon XP 3200+
Corsair DDR 400 512 MB Ram
Seagate 160 GB 8MB HD
9 in 1 card reader
Lite On DVD∓RW/ drive
Sony 52x CD-Rom
Evga 128 MB 6600GT 8x AGP

Simplest way is to install suse on a seperate hard drive (seperate physical drive not partition). If you install XP on the primary drive first, you should then be able to install linux on the secondary drive & configure the boot loader to dual boot the two.

I would first make sure that you have all the relevant suse drivers for your system, especially the display driver.
