Group Adds Linux To Boot Camp

Claiming a "triple boot," the open-source project that first claimed the ability to boot OS X and Windows in the same machine has now added Linux to the mix.

The open-source project that first came up with a way to dual-boot an Intel-based Mac into either Mac OS X or Windows XP has published instructions on how to add Linux to the mix. "Triple Boot," as the OnMac.net Web site calls it, relies on the newly-released Boot Camp, Apple Computer Inc.'s dual-boot utility that created a major stir when it debuted two weeks ago. The process is involved and not for the technically faint-of-heart, as it "chainloads" Linux from an already-installed copy of Windows XP using the "LILO" bootloader.
