What is the second distro you plan to install? This will help make finding (or creating) a tutorial easier.

Sorry for the wait. I couldn't find any tutorials, however when I installed it myself, the installer has the option of non-destructively resizing the Ubuntu partition to make room for WattOS. The install is straightforward after that.
