Existing dual boot with Opensuse 11.2 KDE and WIN XP PRO. Tried using Ubuntu 9.10 Live CD to format Opensuse partition and install Ubuntu over Opensuse. Screen locks up, must cold boot system. Checksum number matches correctly. Can I use WIN XP CD to repair boot loader & then install Ubuntu? Any and ALL help is GREATLY appreciated. Thank you [:~)

Download Gparted live CD (http://gparted.sourceforge.net/) and delete Open suse partition.Leave unallocated space and on it install Ubuntu.Grub should pick Windows.
