I have my laptop set up multi-boot but think I should maybe go for a slightly different approach.
Currently I have:
F15 Test (scratchpad)
Now the reason for this is that trying to install CCRMA core for F15 has so far killed much of the system. Same with there being problems with trying to get the nVidia drivers working properly. Hence I thought the idea of having a basic partition I can wipe and try from fresh, or try out other distros too if I feel like it at a later date, was a good idea.
Problem I've found is that installing F15 for the second time seems to reinstall Grub and run it from the last installation. I have managed to get it so I can boot all three, just telling it at installation to use the correct sdax didn't boot but I could copy the arguments from the second install as they were the same (after running yum update.)
Now this seems that Grub is always taking the grub.conf from the latest install, thus it will be wiped each time I want to try something new, which is obviously a bad thing. This leads me into thinking I should change my partitions to have a /boot separate and shared across any linux installations I may have.
So what size is recommended for a /boot?
What actually goes in this directory? Previous session? Any possible problems from having different linux distros sharing the same /boot?
Will this actually prevent Grub from writing a new grub.conf file on a new installation of Fedora?
Also, I changed the test install name to CCRMA but after running updates that include a kernel update it automatically renamed to Fedora (Kernel info) at the boot screen. Is there a way to get it to keep what you have named it and just append the kernel information on a update?
