Installing via Partition
I'm about to install the ML DP onto my Mac, but I want it as a separate partition.
How would I go about doing this? As a recall, I think Disk Utility erases the drive when partitioning. Do I need to use Bootcamp? Or some third party utility like GParted?
Once I get the Partition, I think I an get ML onto the partition (with the whole bootable USB thingy)

You can use Disk Utility.

2. Open the DMG file, then from the mounted image launch the OS X Installer
3. Follow the steps as prompted. Remember to select "Macintosh HD 2" after selecting 'show all disks' when the option becomes available.

I just did this an hour ago . I like it so far. If I restore from a time machine back up will it put everything just like I have it on Lion? I really like the integration with iOS and would like to use it as my primary OS, but im too nervous lol!
