Multiple distros on a drive is quite common when you are testing/playing with several releases. My single core laptop without hardware virtualization would choke on a virtual machine, but it has been a valuable tool for testing alphas and betas while still being usable for work.

Probably time to wipe out Win2K though.  ;D

im probably going to hate myself for asking this but why 7 distros?
why not install 1 distro and play with other distros in a VM such as virtualbox?

Re: 1st pc, no GUI install, x & wifi problems (I named this one 'play2')
ISO passes md5sum check.  Don't use a separate home partition.  All personal files are kept in a separate data partition mounted as /common, with symbolic links from login directory to directories on /common.  Don't think /common was mounted during install, added to fstab 2 days later.

I currently have 7 distros installed on play2.  Good news is that after SEVERAL DAYS of playing with it (TUI boot, root login, start xfce4, start wifi, then logout, relogin as me and start xfce4 and wifi) installation seems
to be normal.  Today, booting GUI, login as me, wifi autostarts, menus work, etc.  Have done more desktop configuration, installed thunderbird, gnucash, libreoffice, did some browsing.  Only change was insuring that xfce4 was preselected session before logging in.  Did this several days ago, didn't seem to make any difference then.  Today it's GREAT and FAST :).  System seems to have healed itself.  X can still die on login but works OK if I try again.

Did you happen to choose a home partition and not format it during install on that setup that does no have a working x??

Also did you verify the md5sums of the idk image downloaded to run the install from?

Attached are the hardware list and log files from my 1st problem child install.

I did a new install on my other desktop yesterday - similar but newer hardware.  Both GUI and CLI installs worked fine, log in was normal.  But, network manager could not negotiate a connection with the network.  Have both cat 5 and wifi connections on that machine - could not get an address on either one.  Did not try disconnecting one or the other connections.

Would it be of help if I posted the hardware list for this machine and/or any of the log files?

Yes, definitely.
