Smile Boot Camp on Macbook: How do I add Linux?


I'd like to install Ubuntu or Mandriva or Fedora on my Macbook, which currently has Boot Camp with 1 HFS+ partition for OSX and 1 FAT32 (yes) partition for Windows XP.

Last time I tried to install linux on this setup, I lost everything. Random internet searching comes up with very complicated tutorials for doing this.


Surely somebody here has done what I want to do, so let us know how you did it!

Why, installing Ubuntu is very easy.

Try installing Ubuntu using its LiveCD.

Before installing Linux, I suggest you read about these: ext2/3 , /dev/hda1, /dev/sda1 etc.
