I do NOT have experience with Suse.


But i do have with Centos and Ubuntu. You will need an extra empty partition on you harddisk next to the windows partition or empty unlocated space on the harddisk.

(There are tools that can shrink your windows partition to create free space) BE CAREFULL AND MAKE A BACKUP IN THIS CASE

After you have an partition or free space you can easily install Centos or Ubuntu and probably Suse. Just follow the instructions of the installer and be sure not to overwrite your windows partition
