View Full Version : [ubuntu] Triple boot to test the water in Karmic?

November 2nd, 2009, 09:19 AM
Hi all

I'm preparing to switch over to 9.10 but am trying to bomb proof the process - presently I dual boot Jaunty / WinXP.

Can I create a new partition and triple boot with Karmic / Jaunty / WinXP? Or will this cause problems with Grub2 etc? My thinking is to get a clean install of Karmic then go through and add programs and copy over my home folder, then delete Jaunty when I'm happy with it.

If I do this am I better to create a new partition before starting the Karmic install or let the partitioner on the Live CD do it for me?

And how easy is it to delete my Jaunty install assuming all the above goes to plan?
