Question about Intel Motherboard
Just bought the thing and I am new to linux. From what I understand most people change the operating system because the hardware is not fully supported by suse version. HELP!!! What do I do? Can I change it to windows XP or another more friendly version of linux for this computer?
Use the disk management utility in Windows or one better would be Partition Magic 8 (it is older and maybe you can find it on a torrent site or something) use half the disk for Windows and leave the other half open for Linux. With Linux you will need 2 partitions. The first will be for the OS and the second is a swap partition, usually twice the size of your physical RAM.
Install Windows first, as you will need to use the boot manager from Linux to select the OS. Then install Linux. Make sure you select the main partition to install the boot manager on.There is either GRUB or LILO. LILO is the older one, and it fairly straight forward but GRUB is better.

Yes you can change to any operating systems at any time. You can change to linux's earlier versions or later versions, or you can change to windows wp/vista/me/98/95. When you buy a computer it comes with an operating system, However you can change it to whichever operating system you want. all you will need to do is purchase whatever operating system you want, it will come with installation disks, pop one in restart your computer and it will walk you threw installing it. ( I have done this with XP & Vista, I am assuming Linux is the same.)

> used hard disk
If you have installed a drive from another system, it probably has settings applicable to the system from which it was removed. The original system could well have had settings for a different audio chip and video resolution. You need to look at the device drivers for audio and video and make the changes needed so they apply to the laptop you have.
