I'm not sure that I understand what your
actual question is ...
Would you like to know how to set the machine
up for dual-booting? It's not a big deal to do so,
you'll need at least three partitions:
3. Linux Swap
And once you've bought your Mac you can
just change the eXPeriment-partition's type
to 83 with fdisk and format it with your preferred
journaling filesystem, and reuse it for Linux.
If you want higher performance in Linux once
you're done you might want to buy a second
HDD, put it on the second controller, and when
finished with the fisher-price-edition of the evil
OS move /home, /tmp and /usr/lib over to the
other HDD :) - maybe add another swapper on
the "spare" HDD.
