triple booting while keeping my current installation alone
okay, i'm 17 years old and i'm not NEW to linux, i'm just not that great, i've been using and messing with it since about a year after my family first got a computer so like 13. my internet at home is complete crap, so i can't update my computer regularly. < keep that in mind
originally i wanted to dual boot fedora 15 and windows 7, i already had windows installed, and so when i put the fedora disc in i clicked "shrink your current os's partition for fedora" or something like that... well, when i did this i wasn't at home, so i had a few things i haven't backed up but nothing super important, and i've messed with dual booting linux on windows before and had no problems.. well, after it got done when trying to load into windows (not even an option for fedora) i got the bsod. it actually cut my windows installation in half.. i saw the "starting windows" animation but then that got cut off by the bsod.. so since i had my fedora disc i just erased windows and forgot about what i had on my pc. so i fully updated fedora (still not at my house), and got it all set up.
but now i'm having problems with it, the Fluendo mp3 decoder is imho complete crap, i'm using banshee and i have a 5.1 surround sound and it's just hard to listen to, it's scratchy and... just bad
i also have a waccom bamboo tablet, mypaint doesn't work for some reason fedora 15, gimp is great, but i prefer something like PaintToolSAI, which would be mypaint.. and neither does the linux waccom drivers that worked on ubuntu..
so with this many issues i figured it's be easiest to just do a dual boot, that way with windows i get iTunes for my music (i know some people aren't a fan of it but i like it), PaintToolSAI for my art, and then i'd get to keep my fedora how it is, and then i like ubuntu for other reasons
okay, so i know a lot of people say that the best and easiest way to dual boot your computer is by installing windows first. well, i really don't want to do that, because i'm not at a place where i can install any updates, and won't be for a long time, and i JUST got my fedora the way i like it (minus the issues) but i can do my online stuff, and i really don't want to screw that up...
so i need a help triple booting windows 7, ubuntu 11.04, and fedora 15, and preferably that order with my partitions on my hard drive.. i'm not sure if you can move installations around a hard drive but i'm pretty sure you can..
i would be so incredibly happy if someone would help me figure this out
p.s. sorry for the life story, but i figured i should probably explain my situation first
