Right, I am trying to install several version of Linux on my spare older drive and would appreciate your help.

  1. If I use the windows installer on my second drive (which will contain the OS's), Will I have to partition them for more or will it only let me install 1 (Ubuntu)

  2. Do I need to partition for more than 1 OS(s) and would be unable to Partition for more?

  3. Ubuntu 13.10 can be installed manually without partitioning, you can select your drive ect, ect. But does it auto part your drive for you? in screenshot 3 it shows you can select your drive it looks like it auto partitions for you but I am unsure if it actually does.

Thank you for any help and assistance you can give me.
