I don't know if this is the best forum for this topic, but it seems to be the best fit.
The machine that I've installed Windows 7 on is an older machine that I would like to use for trying out various operating systems, and even installing a small DOS partition so I can play around with some old DOS stuff I used to enjoy.
The computer currently has four smaller hard disks installed: two 30 gigs, two 20 gigs. Win 7 is installed on one of the 30 gigs.
Initially, I want to keep things simple, and pretty much dedicate one drive to one OS. For sure, I plan to install Linux, probably the Ubuntu distribution. And possibly OS/2.
What I don't want to do is find unpleasant surprises after I try installing other OSes, such as not being able to get into Windows 7 anymore.
I have a copy of System Commander v9, but I am not all that enthusiastic about the way it chooses to set up OS installations.
There's bound to be folks here who have dual (or more) boot setups they're running with Win 7 as one of the OSes, and I'd appreciate hearing from you if you have any pointers to share.
