i want to install 4 Linux distros on a blank HD.
In the past i have installed Ubuntu and Crunchbang behind Vista. Easy peasy.
But it seems that what I want now is a little different and I don't see it.
I had gParted my HD into 4 primarys and one unallocated.
When I install Mint, it wiped all that out.
I guess preparing my HD ahead of time was a waste of time.
But some distros let you put them where you want them.
Not Mint apparently.
I want Mint to be in sda1.
2nd distro on sda2.
3rd on sda3 and 4th on sda4.
Plus I want /home and /swap.
I guess I didn't prepare correctly.
Or am I good and can continue from here,
adding one distro at a time,
particianing as i go???
What steps do I need to take?
Linux since 2004, suse, ubuntu, puppy, crunchbang
