    Alright.. so I just ordered my very first EVER mac.. a 2.93ghz iMac... and I plan on installing the above OS's on it.

    Do I use Bootcamp for all 3? What would be the best approach. I'm also thinking in terms of sharing data in between those 3 operating systems...

    Out of the 640gig disk, I was thinking
    140gig macOS, 50gig windows, 50-100gig ubuntu, and an NTFS partition as a storage "drive" that is accessible from the other 3 operating systems?

    Any recommendations thoughts and perhaps also if one of you have stumpled across a really good 'how-to' page that I can use for this...

    hey sorry to bring this back up, how did you go with it???

    i am thinking of doing the same thing. just having some trouble finding a safe solution to doing it!!

    but anyway here is my method...

    1. split 500GB boot drive into two partitions using Bootcamp Assistant (i was thinking say 40gb).
    2. insert Vista disc, split the 40GB partition into whatever for Vista + Linux.
    3. install vista, then install linux..

    i already have Rflet or , so that part is all sorted..

    any ideas?
