hi. first off, i want to thank all the great people that work on the fedora releases and the folks that monitor and answer countless questions in this forum.
I have read numerous posts regarding partitioning with F13, but end up not knowing for sure if what I am wanting to do will work..
i have pc's setup with multiple linux os's and some with xp or vista.
i typically install the linux os in one partition (so far has always been ext3) and use a swap partition. i choose to use a data partition to share data between the linux os's.
i downloaded the F13 live cd and burned it to a dvd. I had problems after installing F12 several months ago and ended up having to restore the mbr with a Windows cd, so was hoping i could avoid those problems this time around..
my questions are:
Will i be able to install F13 to one (root) partition (with home inside that partition) ?
Does the partition need to be ext3 or ext4 or does it matter ?
Will i be able to boot ubuntu 10.04, mepis 8.5, mandriva 2010, XP, and Vista from the fedora bootloader once it installs ?
thanks for your help.

i thought this was going to be easy.. must be harder than i thought.
have another question on using a live cd..
Can you create a bootable DVD instead of a bootable CD using the live cd iso image? i did, and it boots on one pc, but not on another. the one it does not boot up on just goes to the grub menu after a few seconds of trying to read the dvd. i have to check when i get home, but i think the pc that won't read the dvd has nvidea graphics. how can i make the live dvd boot using acpi=off or other bootable options ?
