see what im after is
10Gig 98 (fat32)
100 gig xp (NFTS)
10 gig suse (whatever it uses)

so its the 98 install bit i can't seem to get it to work?

What no partition for a swap file too?
How is he going to use XP to format the 98 partition if it 98 has to be loaded first.
Been a while but 98SE, 2000Pro then Linux or no go then. So it should be the same w/XP in place of 2000Pro.
If the Fat32 is giving you the headach, try formating just that first with the HD mfgs utility.
