I'm currently dual-booting on a laptop Vista and an Ubuntu 12.04 based distro. When I installed the aforementioned distro, I left free space and I had planned to add another, most likely Ubuntu based, distro to occupy that free space.
I haven't triple booted before and I wondered if there were any pitfalls that I should avoid when installing the third OS? Such as with the bootloader, grub updates etc. Any advice appreciated.
It's nice to be important, it's much more important to be nice.
Just the usual stuff, nothing special actually. I have 4 OSes to boot from right now, so 3 obviously shouldn't be a problem. But you'll have to screw around with the bootloaders and MBRs for a while to get it all just right for you.
