Triple-Boot: Win7/Fedora 14/Mint Debian 201012view story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hi there I am currently running Fedora 12 and Win7. I have backed up all my files from Fedora 12 and want to overwrite it.

So in what order should I install the two linux distributions and what do I have to take care of? Thanks (HowTos)

I've been using the old GRUB for a number of years, and have always used the LABEL= syntax to assure that the correct partition is booted. (HowTos)
