In short, GRUB will install and it can handle many
OSes. Whether the OSes behave is another issue with
NT/XP/2K all complaining bitterly if you move them to
another partition.

And since 10.0 is not a download, the book that comes
with it shows the install routine. If not, well, you
get to trudge forward and know that while multibooting
is done all over, no one will really offer you much
more than "it should work" support.

Safely? I hope you realize this still beta but as Bob says, it should work.

Something else you might need to know about mdk10 is you boot with disc 2, then install with disc 1 (just in case you haven't hear about it). Of coarse this may have already corrected..but just in case....

Just proceed with the knowledge...

That it's a point zero release. And your link is not from Mandrake. AFAIK, they don't hand out the new versions anymore, but they will leak out.

I have had the luxury of getting the retail boxes and you may be missing out on the have the manual...

All that aside, GRUB does multiple OS booting, but support is rare.

Meet the drop-resistant Moto Z2 Force

The Moto Z2 Force is really thin, with a fast processor and great battery life. It can survive drops without shattering.
