Fedora 7, Ubuntu Fiesty, Win XP - 1 laptop drive
Hi. I have a laptop running FC6, and it works great, but I need to triple boot Windoze XP, Fedora Core 7, and (not necessary, but would be nice) Ubuntu Fiesty. What order should I install these in, and do you know of anything that might make this difficult? Also, since Windoze is so crud, I'll need a separate partition for the swap file (4GB, I believe). At what point do I need to create this? Thanks in anticipation - any help would be great. Zeke

Well, XP needs to be at the first position on your drive, and the others can go in whatever order you like them. Since all use the grub boot loader, it's just a simple matter of installing the latest distro, mounting the root partition from the previous distro, and copying the last distros entry(s) in /boot/grub/menu.lst and adding it to the most recent distros /boot/grub/menu.lst.

Great, thank you. That sounds pretty simple (chortle - I bet I'll be here next wednesday trying to figure out where I went wrong. ). But thanks. (lol: I'm a Dapper-Dan man)
