Adding Ubuntu to the mix...
Ok, so now I have my iMac set up with Snow Leopard and Win7 x64 bootcamp. So far, so good. But what if I wanted to add Ubuntu to the mix ?
I've learned that a triple boot system is not so easy to set up. However, I recently installed ubuntu 11 on our dell laptop using the wubi installer. This installs Ubuntu just like any other app on a windows machine (in our case win7 x64). When booting, you have a choice between booting into windows or ubuntu. But I suppose that this could interfere with bootcamp and mess everything up. Or not ?
And what about booting Ubuntu from a USB key ? Is it possible on a Mac ? Anyone tried this and how fast is it (is it workable ?) ? Can you partition a USB-key ?

I've tried it before using rEFIt (custom boot loader), but if you are using BootCamp, it automatically overrides any other bootable device. rEFIt is the only way that I've found to actually boot to a linux distro from a flash drive.
