What about slackware?


How the hell can you not mention Slackware?

As far as dual booting,I can only speak for the three distros I've tried:

SUSE: for whatever reason, it just wouldn't werk.
DEBIAN: I was a newbie and this distro may have been over my head at the time.

SLACKWARE: This distro rocks. After spending several days tryin' to get debian goin', slackware installed like a breeze. I've now got it dual booting on two desktops and my laptop.

Of course any distro should dual boot but slack got me there with no problems.

Slackware is cool, its easy to dual boot too.. just as every other linux distro I have tried, and that is about every major one out there.
