Linux support for Apple's Boot Camp

Posted on Thursday, Apr 20 2006 @ 02:20 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
The opensource project that first claimed the ability to boot Windows on an Intel-based Mac system now published instructions on how to add Linux support to Apple's Boot Camp:
"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.
