http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I have a 15" MacBookPro 4,1 from 2008, and using only the built-in OS switcher (accessed with holding down Alt/Option on bootup) have been able to triple-boot to OSX 10.8 (with FileVault enabled), Fedora 14, and Fedora 17. I used gdisk to create a hybrid MBR/GPT partition table so the Mac boot loader could see the Fedora partitions. Installing the nvidia driver under Fedora 14 from rpmfusion works well. However I have not been able to get the nvidia driver on rpmfusion to work with Fedora 17. I suspect that the problem is the EFI booting under Fedora 17. Does anyone have suggestions? (HowTos)
