Oh okay. But, I am wondering what kind of install I should use if I multiboot.
I can think of two options:
Install normally with the last distro to control the boot loading (I assume the grub of that distro) or a separate dedicated grub partition. I have tried both except I'm not sure how Grub 2 fits into either of this situation. I think some of the more recent distributions with later kernels and development use Grub 2. I also wondered if I update Debian to testing or sid, whether that means using Grub 2 or what.
Sorry if I sound especially clueless or ignorant here. I wasn't really adept at the partitioning and grub configuration even when I set things up but I did manage ultimately. I have no idea what the situation would be now though if I tried a similar arrangement.
The only common intangibles that would remain, however, is using XP, Debian and maybe two other distros. I am also looking into a VirtualBox setup but I believe I can do that no matter what I decide to do.
