Help with multiboot of several linux distros on 1 hard disk
I love VMware but I don't have enough cpu & memory on my laptop so....
What I'm wanting to do initially is at least have 3 distros on 1 hard disk and I'm guessing Grub will be my best option.
I have an 80gig hard drive on my laptop.
Since I have to use win2k for work, I already have this on the first partition.
Installing, say FC2, as a dual boot option is simple enough using Grub.
Here's the 1st question:
1. Since I'm wanting to installing a 3rd OS, where should I install the boot loader? (mbr or a separate boot sector)
2. Does it really matter where I install the boot loader?
3. When installing the 3rd OS, say Mandrake, what do I do at the end of the install when it asks me where to install the boot loader (mbr / boot sector)?
Last time I installed the 3rd boot loader it wiped reference to 1 of the OS's so I could only dual boot.
4. How then do I get the already installed Grub to recognise the 3rd OS?
Help greatly appreciated.
