    I'm about to tri-boot my system.

    I want Mac, Windows, and linux.

    For Mac I'm using Snow Leopard and for Linux I'm using BackTrack 4. I'm going to also use Windows XP and Windows 7, one is going to be a virtual drive and one is going to be my second partition. Which should be my second partition and which should be virtual? Windows XP or Windows 7?

    BackTrack is a kinda strange choice for a Linux distro.

    Agreed, i would use Ubuntu.

    I would also have 7 on your second partition.

    Why do you want to triple boot anyway, what do you need Linux for?
