    2 - Suse 9.3 (which is awesome) and Win XP. I don't think I will go past two but I am really interested in Arch (had problems with 0.6) and Debian.

    Five. Windows XP (but only so I can use Partition Magic), ProMepis, SuSE 9.1, Beatrix and Slackware 10.1.
    Since I've been using Slackware as my main distro at home, I don't seem to be interested in testing other distros any more. I think my search for the perfect distro has stopped at Slackware.

    psic, I've been a Morphix fan from way back! They've slowed a lot in the last year, but the latest offering in Lite-GUI has been very impressive!

    Once you figure it out, you will see how easy it is.
    Just do a search for Grub and then put my handle in the author search line. You will see all kinds of advice on how to set up a multi-boot system.

    i have one

    i thought about keeping windows, but i ruined the installation process and lost five years of work

    so i then tried mandrake

    now i just have fedora and to be honest, i cant imagine having more than one OS, i like having everything into one system without having to go back and forth

    shucks, i started three user accounts and havent used the other two at all

    I have two linux distros so I can play around with one and not worry about messing anything up in the other. Right now, my 'main' (or stable if you wish) distro is Morphix, and my playground is Vector (though I haven't had time to take it for a serious spin yet). I have something like 10 various distros lying around, and two torrents are being downloaded as we speak.

    well, i think it might of been becuase i was switching directly from windows, and the security partition kept getting in the way...

    Just Mandriva LE 2005. THough I am swapping to SuSE - But I've given up multibooting, a computer's for using and it kills me to gut all that HD space. I have an old Dell Optiplex PIII, 512MB so I test on that and I kepp my Inspiron running just one OS, though I am partial to a few live disks like Mepis, Knoppix, SLAX especially. Looking forward to SuSE though...
