Default Tricky question on triple boot - 10-20-2009, 03:06 PM

Hello, sorry if this is a naive question; I am new to multibooting.

I've been playing with XP, OSX, and Ubuntu on the mini. Of every install I wrote a Retrospect backup. Now I would like to restore them all on a triple boot external USB disk. Is that possible at all? How?

An internal OSX with Retrospect is available, so I thought I could just fill up different partitions with the restores. But what about MBR/GUID/chameleon/etc? What is the minimum space each OS requires?

Thx for help,
