buddylee48 gave an example in *this* thread on July 24

where 3 distros were installed each with a separate primary boot partition.

and a bunch of LVM partitions for each distro.

So yes Dr. Dubbs with 3 primary partitions and one LVM

it is maxed out.

The nice thing about linuxfromscratch is that it does not
automatically own your MBR and grub configuration and
generally mess things up.

Many distros do which is what I was commenting upon.
