multiboot linux


I'm completely linux newbie. I got a PC(32 bit) from my friend that has Fedora & Ubuntu on single HDD.Now I need to install Suse on the same HDD without destroying other distros.Please let me know what are the prerequisites for this? & how to do this step by step.

I'm not sure how the before installation is done?? I'm not sure about grub editing/tweaking.Plz guide me clearly.If you need any additional information plz let me know.At present installation of SUSE is very important

Ubuntu 10.04

Fedora 13

OpenSuse 11.3

Thanks in advance

    Before we get into any instructions we need a few questions answered.

    [ol][li]Do you have any free/unpartitioned space on the hard drive for a new installation and if so how much?[/li]
    [li]Do you have an install disk for OpenSUSE already on hand?[/li]
    [li]If you do not have any unpartitioned space, what OS would you be willing to loose?[/li]
    [li]Do you know if it is using lilo, grub(legacy) or grub2 as the bootloader presently?[/li]
