    Xipher_Zero Posts: 48
    The first drive is sliced up like this:

    Win7 :: 200mb
    Win7 :: 20gb
    OSx :: 30gb
    Ubuntu :: 922gb (Root=20gb, swap=2gb, home=900gb)
    Fedora :: 462.8gb (Root=20gb, home=remainder)

    I run everything through grub to handle the boot process.

    LOL Yeah I used to do that, but I really missed the performance of fully installed systems. I actually use the last 2 partions as floater Linux play partitions and install what looks interesting there. Currently Fedora's installed, but more than likely Ill try mandy again for the hell of it. I primarily use Ubuntu and sometimes OSX for Video editing (My god I cant wait for decent video editing software for linux!)

    You have a point, Arben. Just like with real sex, you have to use some common sense and protect yourself from nasties.
