I'm preparing to have custom-build shop create PC with three hard disk drives. HDD#1 will be regular/internal sort, 500GB or less; a dedicated drive for Linux Mint 10. Secondary HDD will be SATA mobile-rack sort, probably 750GB, for Windows XP Pro (with BrowserLinux 400b6 on partition). Third HDD will be SATA mobile-rack, 500GB or less, to trial out various operating systems,such as PC-BSD 8.1, Fortress Linux, ect., each OS on its own dedicated hard disk. My question is what are my options for multi-booting bootloaders, boot managers, and so on? Also, how do I handle boot sequence? Any potential problems?
