    XP,Ubuntu 10.4 Netbook Remix & Meego on same netbook?

    Hi Peeps,

    Just getting my netbook setup for different things. I've my xp partition for some of my windows things, a ubuntu partition with mythbuntu for media centre, now going to try and put meego on as well. I've got the xp and ubuntu working together nicely and have a free partition of 15Gb for the meego but just checking that this is doeable first? Meego is for general web browsing because of the speed of it.

    Thanks, Ben

    I can't see why not, are you using Grub 2.0 boot loader? or the Windows XP one?

    just make sure you have a rescue CD/USB stick so you can get back into the Ubuntu partition and redo GRUB if the boot sector gets blasted.
