Currently I have installed in a dual-boot setup, Windows 7 and Ubuntu. Grub2 is the loader. I want to install openSUSE 11.2 without wrecking havoc on my Windows 7 installation and getting rid of Ubuntu. How do I get rid of Ubuntu, Grub, keep Windows7 and install OpenSUSE.

Will just running OpenSUSE installation, and then deleting the Ubuntu partition be enough? And then won't Grub2 be cluttered with Ubuntu specific entries?

Start the openSUSE installer, during partitioning choose to format the Ubuntu partitions and overwrite them with openSUSE ones. That's all. I did the same (albeit, I was using openSUSE 11.2 M8) and it went smooth.
