I am running mandriva linux on my bootcamp partition and runs smoothly. Bootcamp makes it pretty easy to dual boot mac... but didnt understand why Apple thought people will install only Windows on bootcamp. Isnt it funny that bootcamp menu shows mac & windows when the second partition is infact running linux..... Is it a miss from Apple or a deliberate move... rEFIt is far better in recognizing the partition and showing it correctly on the menu... dont know why apple cant think of it.
QUOTE Thanks
