    Hmm...should i install OS X on a seperate partion? I don't really want to, and i prefer not to have 2 HD icons on my desktop. But i want to be able to turn on my computer and choose which OS to boot to. Personally i think you should choose even if it's on one partion, but you can't :(

    So should i install X on a seperate partion or pray that Apple releases an update allowing me to choose from the boot?

    I've always put operating systems on their own partition. It's a much better idea.

    and why is that?

    and how do you do it? Just the system on one partion? Or the system plus all apps and that crap?

    If you put the oses on different partitions you don't have to worry about them fuxoring each other.

    You can put all the system stuff on one partition and then all the apps and stuff on another if you want to. Or you can put it all onto one.
