How did it affect your other systems?
Installation to different partitions works, and selecting different OSs from 
boot menu. You may have to select "expert" partitioning during installation, 
instead of accepting the defaults.
Creating and resizing partitions works, too.
Or, is the problem related to some virtual machines?

No, it has changed for OpenSuse. It is now either 1 CD or 1 DVD.
You need the bandwidth anyway. With DVD install you need it for downloading 
the image. With CD install you need it for installing additional SW (like 
FPC/Lazarus) from repos. At that point the OS is functional already and 
downloads can happen in background. It worked well for me. I have a 1 Mbit 
ADSL connection now but a slower one is OK, too.
