Triple Booting

Hi everyone. I'm a former Ubuntu user who jumped ship to Linux Mint. I currently am dual booting Windows 7 and Linux Mint 11 using Grub 2. Is there a way to install Fedora last? Much of the reading I have done suggests Fedora needs to be installed before Mint/Ubuntu. Thanks for the help.

By the way, I have searched the forums and it has been suggested to wipe out Ubuntu, install Fedora and then re-install Ubuntu. I would much rather shrink the Windows partition and install Fedora before Mint and update Grub.

I don't see why not. And to preserve the existing boot loader arrangement (always a good idea when trying a new system, IMO), choose the boot loader option that installs Fedora's GRUB in the first sector of the Fedora boot partition. Reboot and configure the existing boot loader to boot Fedora.
