Booting LinuxMint + several Linux same Drive

Postby halojoy » Thu Jan 29, 2009 5:55 am

Hello.
I just downloaded and successfully installed LinuxMint 6.
Now I will compare Mint with some other major Linux distros.

I have this drive partition configuration of my 400GB:
90GB primary sda LinuxMint with boot
90GB primary sdb
90GB primary sdc
90GB primary sdd

Those 3 other primary I want to use for some other Linux.
Like MEPIS, PClinuxOS, openSuse etc. etc.

Question:
How can I use this drive for be able to boot into any of those 4 parts?
I guess I will have to configure the GRUB Boot loader for every new Linux install
and maybe keep grub boot it in the first sda partition?

It's probably the simple way, as well.
