[all variants] Quad boot XP Ubuntu Mint Cinnamon and Mint Mate on notebook

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I tried to install 4 OS' on my second notebook as quad-boot. Previously, dual boot went fine (XP and Mint Cinnamon) and I could make a spare partition at fat32 or ntfs. The notebook also has a SD card slot, currently using a 16 GB class 10 SD card. The SD card shows up on Mint install so I presume I can use this for swap space (e.g. 1/2 at 8 GB) and then 4 free partitions are left over on the hard drive. I tried to use these for XP (already installed), Mint Cinnamon (already installed) and made ext4 partitions for Mint Mate and then later for Ubuntu 12.04 (or 12.10 when its final release comes (Hardware)
