Running Xubuntu 10.04 & Fedora 13

Hi Guys,

I'm currently running Xubuntu 10.04LTS as my main distro, but would like to also run Fedora 13 on the same machine.
Therefore, I'm more so just after a bit of steer of the best plan of attack to achieve this - best procedure to partition the drive (80gb / i686) and install Fedora etc.

Any tips, tricks, and/or advice most welcome.
Thanks in advance.

are you going to keep fedora for a bit ? as in upgrading to fedora 14 , 15 , 16 ?
if so the /boot partition for fedora MUST be very big , 750 meg to 1 gig . That way you can use "preupgrade" if you do not install many things from third party repos

the default install of fedora sets /boot at 100 meg

one thing you might want to do is to STUDY the fedora docs !
and the wiki


fedora, partition, xubuntu
