    Wow....that is a nice link, wish I'd found it when I was trying to set up my dual boot.

    Just out of curiosity, what Operating Systems are you trying to dual boot?

    If you want to make God laugh....make plans.

    For your info............

    If you need a good boot manager to handle multiple os I suggest gag
    it's easy to install supports up to 9 operating systems:

    I have Win XP & Red Hat Linux in my PC by using Partition Magic 8.0. I think there will be no problem if I want to add additional distros.

    I have a dual boot on the same harddrive with Mandrake 9.0 and Windows XP.
    It wasn't hard to set up (once I started trying with Mandrake 9.0 instead of RedHat 7.1)
    I just partitioned my drive and Mandrake handled it from there...Super easy.
