Mac Gems: Byte breakdown One of the questions I’m frequently asked as a Mac writer—and a question we see quite often in the Macworld forums —is, “My hard drive is getting full; how can I see which files are taking up all that space?” It’s an understandable question: Your hard drive started out with 50GB or so of free space, but now it’s down to 10GB and you have no clue as to why. (OK, so you’ve installed a few sizable software packages, and then there are all those MP3 files you ripped from your CDs and media you purchased from iTunes, and...)

The next few posts will chronicle the necessary steps to complete a triple boot (Windows 7, Ubuntu 10.10, OS X 10.6.5) setup on a (non-Mac) notebook. Background: For the above mentioned setup, a modification is required to the Snow Leopard installer so that it will accept an MBR (master boot record) type destination disk, instead of only a GPT (GUID partition table) type destination disk. As a side note, there are two ways that can be used to install Windows on a GPT disk: It is possible to install an implementation of EFI (e.g. Most Windows tools are unable to work with a DMG file, and from my experience, those that can, have difficulty with the OS X installer.
