After using PM just load your favorite flavor of linux and let it do the work. Lilo will let you dual boot. Some people use other boot managers.
There's several good resources on the web for this and google is your friend.

it is a completely new machine.
120 gb hd that i made an 80gb particion in the bginning to install XP on. That is formatted ntfs.
the other 40 gb is unformatted.
when in startup with the SuSe cd in the drive, XP always starts up and it doesnt appear that the suse installer is catching.
Am i doing something wrong? I have installed RedHat on a win2k machine and Suse on a XP machine, both dual boot fine, but I cannot figure out why this is not going right into a setup to install linux.
Do i need to format the final 40gb of unformatted rive before i can install linux?
do i need partition magic just for that?

Do you have your bios set correctly to load from CD first instead of hard drive?

If you can't seem to figure out how to dual boot another viable option would be something such as a virtual workstation such as VMWare. This allows you to install a guest operating system inside the system thats already running. This way both can run at once. Not recommended for people with less than 512mb ram, or under a 1.5ghz processor. They tend to run really slow under those specifications.
alrite geeks i need help. first timer on here myself. thing is i have the VM ware. but i dont have a cd burner. i would like to install ubuntu.i have downloaded the iso and can mount with nero image drive. but since its a live cd (which involves a reboot) how do i get it to work without having to buy a burner.
plz help out.
no black mails(my sisters are finished)...lol

I had some issues at first since linux took over the MBR and I couldn't boot into Vista. But I got it figured out with some help from a good group of guys at a Linux Specific FORUM.
Not to chase you away from the good help here, but you might also find some valuable resources there.

I'm wondering if it's possible to dual boot with Linux residing on an external drive?
If your mainboard supports booting from an external you don't need to dual boot. Mount a bootable image (install) to the External Drive and it will boot when the drive is plugged into the PC and you start the PC. Several distros offer the option to install to external devices and the forums for the distro usually have information on how to set it up.
