Re: Triple booting with XP x64, Fedora x64, and Ubuntu x64.



This is just a thought, but why don't you just try setting up a VMware server ? 

I run all of those OS'es (and more) at the same time on a 64 bit dual core AMD Athlon box with 3 large hard drives in it, and about 3 GB of RAM. 

You have the option with virtualization to add more disks, memory, cpu's, take snapshots of your servers, etc. 

The "VMware Server", and now the "VMware ESXi Server" and  is free to download when you register at their site, you get the full version of their software. 

Just my $ 0.02 cents ... :-P

The most important thing to keep in mind when installing multiple
operating systems in a multi-boot configuration is Windows doesn't know
how to do that. Windows always thinks it's the only OS being installed,
so it must be first. Subsequent Linux installs will recognize any
pre-existing installs and set up GRUB so that Windows is one of the
choices.

The second consideration will be how much hard drive space to allocate
to each OS. This used to be critical, but huge hard drives are now
cheap.
