That would be extremely useful. I just installed a shiny new 750GB drive which is dedicated to Linux. I'm planning on two copies of the VLocity beta. One will stay there so I can play online games, the other will be the testing distribution that can get torn up and replaced whenever there's a new update to be installed. Now I'm going to log out and install Fedora as I've always wanted to check that distro out. And with all this extra space I suddenly have, I don't have to decide what distro stays and which one goes.
Edit -- I'd like to expand on this a bit.
I'm a distro junkie. I like playing around with different distributions and I'm beginning to notice a disturbing trend with the newer installers.
They're made for the noob in mind. And while this isn't a bad thing, it's driving me mad with the lack of advanced options for GRUB installation. I would LOVE to see an advanced option that not only allows me to edit menu items before creation, but also specify the location of the grub files. As it stands, each new distribution writes the GRUB configuration to its own install location, and if I want it changed back to say /dev/sdb1, I then have to log into that distribution and rerun the GRUB configuration and then install GRUB again. That's a friggin' pain in the backside.
Having an installer that provided this type of flexibility is something I crave every time I install or reinstall a new distribution. I think it would be a feather in our cap if we were the first to actually provide it.
Doable? Or am I dreaming of the impossible?
And where's B0.13?!!!
