Triple boot on your MacBook Pro E-mail

Ever felt the need to run three operating systems separately on your MacBook Pro? I scoured the internet in search of a good, straightforward guide to accomplishing the task. Unhappy with what I found, I decided to write up a straightforward guide for anyone else daring enough to do the same.

When all's said and done, you'll have a menu upon boot up giving you the option of either your Mac (tested with 10.5.3), Windows (tested with Vista 64-bit), or Linux (tested with Ubuntu 8.04 64-bit - Alternate Install CD) operating system. As an aside, this guide assumes that you will be dividing the drive space evenly between all three operating systems. Be warned, though, the time to completion may take up to 5 hours. This does not include burning OS install disks. Unfortunately, most of this time will be spent waiting for progress bars. The laptop will be rendered unusable for work. Plan accordingly. Icrontic
