Allocate space on your hard drive, create new partitions with this space, install your second OS of choice.

What is the configuration? Number and size of drives, partitions, etc.
First, you need empty space. The installer will setup new partitions and install a bootloader (or you can leave your existing one and modify its configuratin file to point to the new installation.)

Backup your data first.....

I left out one key bit of advice---ask Saikee!!!
My impression is that he is the world's leading expert on multi-booting.
And also in Guinness for the most OSes on one machine??.....

I got a red face now!

Anyway I put together this booting tips thread and will improve on it and add whatever relevant.

Should be good fun and make Linux enjoyable.
