Default Embarking on a Pentaboot - 05-11-2010, 11:29 AM

Not content with my 10v's meagre two operating systems I've decided to devise a project to add not one, not two but three new operating systems to my netbook. Although ostensibly they're all Linux. I already have a perfectly working Snow Leopard/Windows 7 install though so I'm wary of screwing it up. The OS's I plan on adding are Ubuntu, Moblin and Android x86. I'll probably tackle it this weekend but I believe the partition file systems will likely be an issue and I'm going to have to be careful what order I install in. Ideally I'd like to keep Chameleon and try and chain GRUB to it but I'm not overly fussy in this regard. Anyone got any tips or links I should take a look at?

And yes, I am entirely too bored.
