Hi there, i come with another question.

I am sure this question was asked before but i cant seem to find a thread with a good expanation, so i ask not to tell to google or use search ^^ (A link to a good post would be heplfull if u know one)

Goal: To setup 4 OS's on my laptop
Purpose : Learning Expirience

Questions: What file system i should use for my Os's, i want to install Ubuntu, Slackware, Satux, FreeBSD.

How should i partion the HD size wise, i seen some people saying give 10gb to each os and rest goes to /home .. further explanation would be great.

How do i partion the HD , i dont currently have any os on the laptop.

What boot manager should i use, and how can i install and set it up before installing any of the os's

Much apriecieated.
