    Default Can I boot 132 +retail my Acer Aspire 3680?

    I've been reading all the threads I can find with search about acer and the 3680, and I've seen several different install methods used. I'm aware of the different kexts I'm going to need, I've been downloading them. Has anyone tried boot 132 + retail on a machine like mine? I'd actually like to triple boot it, vista, linux, X...

    I have 2g ram in there,

    Looks great, it should work but to install retail you need the whole disk, so you have to install Vista and Linux in another HDD

    I was thinking I could just install each OS on a partition...I'm trying to work that out now. Actually, I don't really even need to install linux, because I usually use Puppy Linux, and I can boot that off of a flash drive.

    Just use a distro and you will dual boot, triple boot, but retail will use the whole disk, these flash drive are too slow for an OS? you can do it with USB HDD tho
