Question MultiOS Boot Question


Presently, I dul boot my PC. Got Windows also but 99% use Linux. There are several Distros that are small and these days PCs are getting bigger and bigger.

Can one have say 20 Operating Systems in the same PC and choose anyone of them at boot ?

Thanks.

Vijay

Yes, you can do that, you need 20 logical partitions within an extended partition, You can share swap among your linux distros. I believe grub and lilo can handle it.
