    Unhappy installing BT3 With fedora and windows xp .. is it possible ??


    i have a hard drive 160GB

    yes you can triple boot these 3 os's check out the backtrack wiki pages for a full tutorial

    I do have one question for you though, how are you installing os's on sda8/sd10, I thought hardrives could only have 4 primary partitions? Are the previous partitions all logical?

    i made these partitions first thing fromating DM to 4 Partitions .. then i made another specific partitions .. i cutted them from another partitons ..

    i guess you can do all that with and partition manager program ..
