All right, thanks for that info. Maybe I'll just get vmware and install linux through there? The only reason I want this is to crack wep keys, as I'm pretty sure you can't do it on a mac. If I'm wrong, please tell me.

 

 

If you install Linux after Windows...you use the partioning tool in Linux to do the partitioning and secondly, Linux Grub loader will take care of the boot sequence by itself if you don't do any special customisation like changing the grub location....Darwin bootloader can also be used to dual boot... else you can use EasyBCD or Acronis OS selector in windows to handle the boot process.

So can I just make a new partition maybe using disk utility? Then install XP, then install Acronis os selector and everything should be okay?

 

EDIT: I can't seem to find a way to create a new partition in Mac os x without wiping the drive. I've done this before in xp without destroying data, is it true that you can't do this in osx?

-boot with linux cd. Partition with gparted makink 3 active partitions.

-boot windows cd/dvd and install windows

-boot with linux cd and install linux, and install also Grub on the root of disk :

if windows : /dev/sda1 and linux: /dev/sda2

then install grub on /dev/sda.

-boot with leopard dvd, and install leopard on third partitions (on MBR!)

-reboot with linux cd and reinstall grub, again on /dev/sda.

-Boot into linux and add all necessary entries into Grub's menu.lst.

 

Voilà, triple boot success!!!
