    Have Maverick: Want to multi-boot Ubuntu + Fedora + OpenSUSE

    Sorry but I do not know whether this is better suited here or at the Ubuntu main boards.
    Well... Basically how? Any manual repartitioning or Grub fixing? I am sorry but I do not know how I can elaborate my questions...

    Thank you very much.

    EDIT: Well there's VM, I already tried Mandriva with VBox, so I guess...
    I support SOPA and I dare say it.

    You will be partitioning through a package called "gparted" to make a partition for 2 more
    installs. You will be using a graphic installation package called "anaconda" for fedora and OpenSuse both use grub-legacy do not install grub at all use Ubuntu's grub2 to boot off of. So do not install GRUB AT ALL. Boot into ubuntu when done and "sudo update-grub" will put fedora and or OpenSuse in menu entry and grub-config. You will use RPM package management for repositories in both. Fedora uses yum instead of apt-get and OpenSuse uses zypper instead of apt-get. So there are some items you can google and study first. Here is a few links. Enjoy

    That's cool. I'll keep Grub in mind.
    So what partitions should the new ones be? Ext3? Ext4? Definitely not NTFS that I understand...

    Thanks.
