"This" close to wiping XP from my T-61

Slow bootup time, flaky WPA with Linksys box at home, and (the last straw, this morning) problems with the Sprint Mobile Broadband connection manager, plus I need the partition. Yeah about time.

I just received my T61 and I'm pretty happy with it. Because I got it through my workplace I'm gonna have to keep the XP partition though, but I'm planning to use Zenwalk 5 (slackware descendant) as my main OS. With the possibility of installing other linux distros too.. :)

I was just wondering what dual booting setups you've tried, boot loaders and any other useful experiences/advice you can think of that may be helpful. Cheers!

I have used the grub that comes with OpenSuse, Ubuntu Gutsy, and Debian Etch with no problems.
