My laptop (with a single harddrive) currently has xp + xubuntu dual boot.
I want to make that triple boot: xp + xp + xubuntu
Please don't ask why, take it as given.
How can I accomplish this triple boot? I tried using gparted to add a partition (worked!), used dd to clone the xp install to the new partition (worked!), edited grub (my bootloader) to list a third entry pointing to the correct device (worked!). But regardless of which of the two xp entries in grub I select I still get booted into one and the same XP. The files for the other XP show up under D: so I know they're there alright. I have edited the boot.ini on the new partition so everything looks to be in order.
What do I need to do to change that and make both xp instances bootable in this scenario?
