The first drive is sliced up like this:

Win7 :: 200mb
Win7 :: 20gb
OSx :: 30gb
Ubuntu :: 922gb (Root=20gb, swap=2gb, home=900gb)
Fedora :: 462.8gb (Root=20gb, home=remainder)

I run everything through grub to handle the boot process.

LOL Yeah I used to do that, but I really missed the performance of fully installed systems. I actually use the last 2 partions as floater Linux play partitions and install what looks interesting there. Currently Fedora's installed, but more than likely Ill try mandy again for the hell of it. I primarily use Ubuntu and sometimes OSX for Video editing (My god I cant wait for decent video editing software for linux!)
