    Okay, so i wanna triple boot my laptop. The thing is, i already got ubuntu and vista on it, and i wanna keep them. I already know how to partition the drive and all, and it says i have 65 GB left on C:, but when i go to partition it, it gives me only 11GB of partition space available.
    So my question is... is there a way to get more than the 11GB (like 30GB) for a new partition? Like should i defrag and see, or is there a program I can get that will do it for me? But remember, i wanna keep vista on it, w/out having to reinstall it.
    Thx -Tyr0

    with what win 98 lol?

    but whats the 3rd OS gonna be? and most OS's when you install them have a built in partition manager.

    like for xp, you can create new partitions and all this stuff...

    what i would suggest (but im not working with windows on my dual boot so not sure if it will work right) is back up your ubuntu and vista, format, and make 3 partitions with the OSX installer DVD, install osx to first, ubuntu to second, vista to third or whichever order works for you
    if you want osx in your grub bootloader though, you will have to add it manually

    at this point, windows 7 is virtually the same as vista, that would just be idiotic to install those both

    It's fun to use stuff that isn't release yet.

    Hell, he could boot into Windows Mobile. On a site I go to, someone released an .iso for burning to a disk and installing on your system.
