Boot OS X, XP, and Ubuntu from a Mac

Well this is a million dollar quest for every techie or a non techie who wants to use multiple operating systems on one's Mac .

Here is a link i found at wired's guide on how to Boot OS X, XP, and Ubuntu from a Mac using simple and easy steps without any huge ''hollywood movie level hacks'' !!

Wired's guide is fairly thorough, assuming that burning an image to CD is base-level knowledge. You'll use the rEFIt tool to set up a multi-system boot screen, GParted Live CD to smooth things over once your hard drive is carved up into partitions, and a free copy of Ubuntu, while it's assumed your copy of XP (or Vista, presumably) is available and legitimate.

There are, of course, easier ways to get at multiple operating systems from one system, like using virtualization software such as VirtualBox, VMWare, Parallels, and many others.

But if you're looking for the no-slowdown, full-on multi-OS experience, Wired's has everything for you.
