help with linux (dual-booting) Answered

i have ubuntu currently installed. it is working fine, its just that i wanna use slackware too, i know that they can be dual booted together and all that fancy stuff. so i guess what i wanna know is how to dual boot them together. and if you could add some pictures that would be a real help. but if you cant than can you make your directions as specific as possible that would work. Thanks.

Adding a second partition of second drive is the first step. Then deal with GRUB *mumbles curses*

I'm not very good with it and I'm working on an ancient laptop that doesn't seem to like it. No, its worth it if you read some good tutorials or have someone help.
