I currently have Arch (64 bit) installed and am booting it with rEFInd. I also have Windows 7 64 bit installed and the dual booting works just fine.

Concerning Linux, /home and / are on two different logical partitions. Say I install Xubuntu to Arch's current /, how could I set up Xubuntu to boot with rEFInd then?

FWIW, I omitted any explicit info since I am looking for conceptual advice. I know the *buntus use GRUB so this is where I am currently pausing. I'm a bit clueless how I could set that up.

Yes, rEFInd will boot any Linux distribution. –  Rod Smith Dec 9 '13 at 0:43
