Anyways I already have a dual booting system with Xp installed first and then Vista on a single 250 gb hard drive partition it for both OS. I use GParted to partition my hard drive and just tired of this boring boot screen by Vista. Now I want to use the bootloader for the Acronis so I would be able to boot from acronis instead of the bootloader by the one vista installed. I haven't received my disk director yet but should be here tomorrow. So I just wanna get a quick guide before messing up something co'z don't feel like starting over again ( have a wife that calls every 5 minutes and a kid that uses the pc too. ) lol! Do i just install the bootloader directly or do i need any configuration? Also, I have another hard drive and thinking of loading Mac OS leopard in there> would it be possible of doing a triple boot? One harddrive partition to two with Xp and vista and one harddrive just Mac OS? Any help or links would be really appreciated. thanks so much and excellent forum.
