hi,

finally succeeded. I did not use lvm. What I did:

1 booted fedora. made a 4gb swap and a 60gb primary partition and
installed fedora there.

2 booted mint and made another 60gb partition and installed mint there.

3 on restart, the machine booted directly into mint

4 booted from the fedora installation dvd and restored grub. I now have
a nice dual boot system - I still have one more partition available,
should I install mandriva, or does someone have suggestions for
something more exotic?

fdisk -l shows:
