I got suse 9.1 installed now and it works great. Well the problem is i can't install windows on the partion.

I can get windows setup to run, format the partition, and then copy the files it needs, but that is it. After that I reboot and I gotta repair the bootloader or even if I don't. It won't boot to the windows partition. Even the bootloader recognizes it but won't work.

/dev/hda1 windws 5GB
/dev/hda3 linux

I might have lost my swap hmmm.

But anyways it won't format or anything and says cylinder error when i try to do stuff to it to linux. What would be the easiest way to just erase the whole hard drive and get this working?
