    Installing Gentoo 2006.0 In Triboot


    I have a dualboot with Windows XP and SuSE Linux 10 and I was wondering if antother entry can added to the MBR or if Gentoo can be installed on the Gentoo Partition.

    you mean if another entry can be added to grub? if that is the case, then yes. And you'll have to create new partitions for gentoo and the like.
    Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.

    So i'll just have to resize my ext 3 in my extended partition and should the kernel be added to /boot on SuSE since that is what the people on the Gentoo Forum are saying.

    All you would need to do would to be resize your partitions to make space for the gentoo installation and then you would have to edit the grub.conf file toinclude Gentoo after installing it.
