> correct upgrade image, and b) apply it, on a system running Linux. 
> My other question is about installing in this case Ultimate Ubuntu
> 2.0. The package to install could be ANYTHING, so it's not about the
> package, but about installation. I'd like to install this package on
> this same system, and then have GRUB allow me to pick which version at
> boot time. Do I just run the install and carve up the drive, partition
> it for space for the two versions? Should I set up a separate
> partition for data to share between the two versions?
