    Hi!
    Right now i'm working on a cuadruple boot:
    Windows Vista
    Windows XP
    Mac OS X
    Linux

    This is being done and tested on a Gateway CX2724 Tablet PC, I have a very good progress in this project. When it's finished I'll post a guide.

    But there's still a question :confused:, is there a way to get a free domain and webhosting? (not a subdomain). I'll thank those who can provide this. This is for posting the guide, and all that stuff, compatibility charts, downloads, etc. Another way to post about this?

    Thanks

    Mac OS on a PC?

    Why even bother?

    Linux and Windows should be enough :p

    I'm working on writing the guide.
    The 4 operating systems work fine. 100% tested.

    Someone knows about programming in Pascal?

    1. What Linux Distro did you install?

    2. What was the install order for your OSes?

    3. What hard drive size/partitioning scheme/OS partition order did you use?

    4. How did you get Mac OS X working?

    5. How is tablet functionality/driver functionality in all of the OSes?

    6. Is the Windows XP Tablet PC partition recoverable using the original recovery partition/recovery CDs that came with the laptop or was the recovery partition destroyed?

    I only received recovery CDs with my M280E and I do not wish to re-install Windows XP, but I really want to try mulitple OSes, especially SuSE 0.

    The two major concerns for me doing a muliboot are:
    a. Windows XP Tablet PC no hassle recovery from the recovery partition/CD

    and

    b. Hard Drive Space (only have the 80GB).

    I am really looking forward to your guide article and any enlightenment you can provide on the above questions.

    Thanks in advance,
    Cheers!

    The Guide on Quadruple boot is finished.
    This forum won't let me upload a file bigger than 19 kb, the guide is 45 kb.
    Any idea to upload it?

    Cool.

    You can try a free web host such as http://members.freewebs.com/, Contact a moderator requesting space to host your guide and or
    Email the guide to me and I can temporarily host the guide on my web host.
