Before I start working through to follow the instructions, can someone tell me if I should have faith in
I want to triple boot OSX, Ubuntu and XP, but using Ubuntu or XP will be very rare, so I want to keep the Apple bootloader intact, and just hold alt when I want to choose OS.
I plan to do the following:
1. Use Bootcamp to make some space for XP
2. Use Disk Utility to shrink my OS X partition to make space for Ubuntu
3. Use Disk utility to split the Ubuntu partition so that I have /, /home and swap
4. Install Windows using Bootcamp, install drivers, etc
5. Install Ubuntu (reformat /, /home to ext3, swap to 'linux swap using gparted) (put GRUB on the partition that is '/' for Ubuntu), install drivers, etc
6. Use reFIT live CD to fix whatever it is the ubuntu breaks (i.e enter the partition tool and resync partitions) - is this reqd?
Anyone have any reasons to believe that wouldn't work or that I've not understood the wiki?
In return for help now, I'll write up a modern howto if it works well
