Well, I agree with this. If a person really wants to set up a multi-boot system, there's a great deal to learn, and you definitely need to understand some basic things. And then I think you have to dive in and struggle through it, and take good notes, and eventually things will start to sink in and you'll get to a point where it really isn't that difficult to set up a multi-boot system. But you really have to do your homework first.

I'd say to just focus on adding a second distro, in a dual-boot set-up, and getting that to work first.
