    When wanting to run Mac OS along with Linux and Windows on a single machine, I read most recommendations talk about first installing Mac OS, then Windows and finally Linux. On my machine I have Mac OS and Linux installed. Can Windows be added without reinstalling the Linux OS? If so how.?

    I installed mine in that order (Mac OS X, Linux, Windows) and I use rEFIt to select which I want to boot.

    Did you touch any of the Mac OSX and Linux stuff (partitions) in the process of installing Windows?

    Nope... I imagine that would break things.

    Out of curiousity I wonder what your HD looks like in terms of partitions. Do you know if your Linux is placed right "after" or "next" to your Mac OS or did you manage to squeeze Windows in between Mac OS and Linux? I'm trying to predict what kind of problems one might run into once I try installing Windows.:)
