Where can I find a tutorial to do it

Once you boot from the CD follow the instructions until you get to the
part where you see all the partitions on your hard drive.

Also I am refering to this guide

I am going to completely uninstall SuSE Linux the reinstall is a dual
boot as a way of increaseing space

Also I found these too would they help but they look oudated and when
I remove Linux won’t I have a huge space of blank space which I could
merge into XP

Also I don’t have partition magic

Its a dual boot with Xp and Xp is the primary install with SuSE as
second in one hardrive

you would have to basicly totaly destroy your partion table, and the
nrewrite it so that the NTFS partion fills the HD, in doing this you
will lose all data on the drive. Althought it isnt hard, just put XP
boot disk in, when you get to the partion seclection menu, delete all
partions on the HD, and make a new one that fills the HD, but as i
said, doing this will erase all data on the HD. If this is what you
mean, then OK. But your post is a bit confusing, please clarifie.

QUESTION!: Why would you want to remove SuSE, it’s far better then
windows, the only problem i have with suse is that ATI dont make
propper Linux drivers for my graphics card (9800) and that CUPS (wiht
out upgrade) dosnt support my printer.
