9x yes, NT can boot multiple OSes just fine. And there *is* documentation of how to do this - of course what I meant was that you don't ever need to worry about the bootloader on a normal windows install.

Btw, I'm in the process of installing gentoo right now - I certainly hope it performs as well as people are saying, because there's a *lot* of manual configuration, and compiling not even everything from source is taking ages.

well, it will be interesting.

I'm pretty convinced that my experiences with XF86 feeling laggy has more to do with the architecture of X than the lack of optimized code and proper drivers - controls "laggily jumping in place" when resizing being the indication. Of course the lack of optimized drivers have meant a lot, too. But now there's at least optimized drivers for nvidia cards, and it seems like the onboard intel extreme graphics is supported too (I'll try them both). And with executables being optimized for *MY* system - there really shouldn't be any excuses left.
