I recently enjoyed the prospect of being able to triple boot my mac (XP, OS X, Lniux Ubuntu.) Have any of you ever triple booted a macbook pro and how? IT WOULD BE BAMF

I'm sure this doesn't count, but:

Back in the day when I needed Linux for engineering, I quad "booted" in VMware. Ubuntu and mandriva worked wonderfully in VMware, without the need to reboot.

If you really want to boot into Linux only, that would be more difficult, but possible. Have a look at http://wiki.onmac.net/index.php/Trip...t_via_BootCamp

Let us know how it works for you!

It seems that Triple Booting has disabled your spell checker however!

Sorry, wasn't directed at you. Was directed at the OP with his "Trible" Boot thread title!

Hi,
I read somewhere that BootCamp is limited number of partitions to 4. Can anybody confirm this ?

Thanks,
Tex
