 Multi-Boot Disk for AMD Opteron Processors

"Sun Microsystems Inc.'s new 64-bit Opteron machines can be configured to run the Solaris Operating System (x86 Platform Edition) and several distributions of Linux, all from a single internal disk drive. This is made possible by correctly partitioning the disk drive at the time of the first OS installation, to allow space for two or more different operating systems. When all of the operating systems are properly installed, the user can choose which one to run from the Linux GRUB Boot Loader, as the machine is being booted."
