"Good old re-partitioning method with a boot manager"

I usually do that whenever I feel like trying Linux for the hundredth time. Or these days, a live cd.

I already have an iBook I used about 10 times with an airport that sit's in a corner in it's original box that nobody wants to buy. Guess nobody wants macs anymore or something, I offered it cheap.

"Guess nobody wants macs anymore or something, I offered it cheap."

So, what do you consider cheap? And for that matter, what generation is it?

As for the poll, I also do the hard drive swap thing. It's just clean and easy, and almost as fast as dual-boot. The only downside is no common storage, unless you count my thumb drive.
