Multi OS Boot Manager

Specs: Windows XP Pro, 1.6
Hi,

Can anyone recommend a free/paid Multiple Boot Manager that comes as an .ISO image that is easy to install and will allow Linux/Windows partitions/OS's on the same hard drive?

I am looking for something that comes as an .ISO because I don't care to learn how to install anything that takes too much effort.

Thanks

ISOs don't take much effort?

Have a look at this: http://gag.sourceforge.net/

If you trawl (search) via google or yahoo etc… for - dual boot XP and linux - you'll get all manner of hits and how to set it up - without need of an additional boot-manager utility…

Before you start out though… FIRST SAFEGUARD your data/files etc… Copy them all to optical or other external media; and check the copies are accessible from the system as, and ideally at least one other working system. Ensure you have your XP disk to hand too - regardless of what kind it is (OEM/Retail full version, or OEM recovery disk).

Some of many...

A Video tutorial - even (probably one on of many out there…)

The less software you have in the way of a boot process - the better overall. Which is why I suggest you have a read of the above, and similar items, and then have a go without the add-in boot-util - again having first copied your data/files etc. off the system entirely.

I've used GAG as suggested by riider and it worked well. It's my go-to boot manager when a Linux flavor is not the last OS to be installed.

I know for many folks an add-in boot-manager offers an easier way to achieve dual/multi-boots - especially if Linux variants are involved...
