Hey Ya'll, around this time last year I fired up Linux Mint 5 for the first time and fell in love with it. Around November, my HP crashed again (Nvidia video card once more) and I said "screw it" and went with a Mac.
Now, for the past couple months I've been just fine and dandy, but with the recent release of updated MacBook Pros and a bit of fortune on my part, I'm going to be upgrading to the MacBook Pro 17", 2.8ghz, 4gb Ram, 500gb HD @ 7200 RPM.
With my extra space, I plan on using 100gb for a partition for Linux Mint 7, not for anything intensive, just browsing, webmail, and chat. I haven't played around with this, nor have I ever even done bootcamp for windows, so while prepping for my installation I'm trying to read up on what I need to do. The only how-to I've found is about Mint 2.2.... so yeah, I'm wondering if anyone has an updated guide or can run me down the basics on here. Specifically, I want to make sure the GRUB doesn't overwrite the Apple Bootmenu... everything else I think I can fiddle my way through.
I plan on taking pictures and screenshots (and maybe even a video) to help others be able to do this successfully. I'm a huge Mint fan, I really have missed it, so I'm hoping to be able to share my experience with fellow mac users looking to spice it up a bit.
