    Default triple booting

    Hi

    i have a laptop with xp pro and ubuntu 9.04 installed.
    Now i want to install BT4 pre release as a third os, is this right way to go

    Make a partion for BT4 no need for swap since ubuntu already have made one

    Install BT4

    Then i dont know exactly how to do, should i install a bootloader for BT4
    and then config Grub in ubuntu since i have a GUI config to make it simple for me.
    or should i not install a bootloader?

    Any help would be apricatetd thanks in advanced

    This really isn't a BackTrack related issue. If you want to triple boot, check out the Ubuntu forums, there are several hundred how-to's there.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    Well if you already have Ubuntu installed use it's boot loader to point to BackTrack.

    not install on mrb but on bootsector of partition and change setting of current grub, and add poit to bt4

    on my acer i have
    - win7beta
    - winvista
    - bt4 reiserfs
    (+ other partition for data)

    i use the win bootloader and add boot point for bt4 with easyBCD.
    work all fine
    acer 5920g , 345abg , nvidia 8600m
    bt5 kde 64bit + acpi + cuda 4.0 / nvidia 270.40 / pyrit

    I have almost the exact same setup. I have 5 partitions one for XP, one for Ubuntu 9.04, one for files, one for swap, and lastly one for BT4 Pre-Release. I installed BT4 last and set it to use the same swap partition as Ubunutu. As for the mbr I left it alone. You can use the installer that came with BT4 and it will automatically use grub and update your mbr adding BT to the list. I just changed the order, it's pretty straight forward, as for adding graphics, haven't got that to work yet.

    How do i make Ubuntu boot loader
    load BT4?

    I thought i would get it to work on my own but i was mistaken.

    hi Therax

    i think i read something before about the existence of "Ubuntu repositories of backtrack 4", as it is a debian. maybe it works just to import some applications (meta packages), maybe all the distro of BT4.

    i didnt find this repositories yet, and I want em. do they exist officially (which i dont think) ?
