Default Triple Boot?

Has anybody ever successfully performed a triple boot? I mean, it seems like it is possible to do somehow.

I am probably going to try on my new rig later and see where it gets me. Vista, XP and Ubuntu.

I have Ubuntu, XP, and Gentoo triple booted. It really isn't hard.

Wouldn't you just have to make a new partition for the new OS and install it on that?

Haha

Windows ME, Windows NT, Windows 98, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows XP Pro, Vista Home Basic, Vista Home Premium, Vista Business, Vista Ultimate, Ubuntu.

Imagine a person with a dual- personality looking at the boot screen...w

I want XP PRO! I AM SO USED TO IT...
but vista looks so good....
Ubuntu sounds like a tribe, therefore it wins...
but for something retro..

So true...

Is it possible to put OSX with XP and Ubuntu? I allready have a dual boot, a friend has OSX 10 and said he would give it to me, could i triple boot since Mac now uses intel processors (i have a pentium D)?

Its pretty straightforward. Just install oldest to newest microsoft stuff, and then linux stuff last.

Windows 95 was great IMO. It's user interface was incredibly revolutionary compared to Windows 3.1 before it.

You can boot as many OSs as you like provided there's enough HDD space and your bootloader is set up correctly.

You could, but a better idea would be to take it from your friend, burn it and curse the ashes.
