    I have a spare Hard drive which I intend to install one or more linux distro's on. I'm contemplating Ubuntu and a more lightweight distro (just for the hell of it)

    How would I go about setting up a multi boot selection menu?. I'm planning to use windows 7 as my main operating system.

    Well partition the drive and install each distro on the partition (partitioning can be done using the installers usually). Then install GRUB, which i posted before.
