Hi, is it possible to multi-boot multiple linux distributions. No windows, but Ubuntu and Gentoo (and maybe another one...)? Thanks.

Very old question...

Yes. Here is a link to a description of a system with ~100 OSes--mostly Linux.

When you install a distro, it will typically prompt you for how to install the boot loader. As part of that process, it should detect other OSes.
