Dualbooting Fedora 19 and Centos 6.4
 
Hi
Currently setting up a new computer that will run Centos 6.4 and Fedora 19.
Which distro should I install first, or doesn't that matter? I see that Centos uses Grub while Fedora uses Grub2. Might it be a good idea to install Centos first, and then when I install Fedora Grub will be upgraded?

Cent uses the legacy grub
fedora uses grub2

install cent first
then fedora

but as a safety and a back up emergency measure
you might want to have 2 grub installs
one for cent and one for fedora
use fedora as the default
BUT there is also cent's grub install that can be used if fedora is FUBAR'ed
