THerefore, I'd install that one last. The Windows installer doesn't seem to understand the presence of other OS'es. Therefore, it will install itself to the MBR, overwriting anything there. By the way, I experienced problems in Debian's autodetection of Windows XP, when it was already patched to SP2. But the method is: Windows (remember to have an SP2-installler-CD nearby in the case of Windows XP, as you should be unplugged from the network while installing) SuSE GNU/Linux Debian GNU/Linux Regards, Anders Breindahl.
