    Hi,
    I've laptop with preinstall vista, later I've install ( successfully ) opensuse11.
    Very smart way opensuse install itself and create space for own and shrink vista partition....
    Now partition look like this ....
    78 - vista
    02 - maybe swap partition for suse
    20 - don't here may be suse files
    39 - don't know could be free space

    so I want that 39gb (it is in linux) to be accessible to vista also..., so wat I've to do????????

    OK, I'd like to help you with this. Start by opening Disk Management in Vista and report what it says about the 39GB partition. Disk Management can be accessed through the Control Panel under Administrative Tools - "Create and format hard disk partitions." I'm guessing suse made an OS partition (20GB) and a "home" partition (39GB) which is where it stores your files. IF it is EXT2, then the easiest option would be to teach Windows to recognize EXT2 filesystem by installing a program called EXT2 IFS.
