What is the correct procedure for dual-booting Fedora 15 and Ubuntu 11.04? Does the order of installation matter?

An article on dual-booting Fedora 15 and Ubuntu 11.04 with both sides on LVM has been published on the main site. You may read it at http://www.linuxbsdos.com/2011/06/20/dual-boot-fedora-15-and-ubuntu-11-04-with-either-side-on-an-lvm-partitioning-scheme/

It does not really matter which is installed first. However, if you want to use the automated disk partitioning feature on both distributions, you want to install Ubuntu first. And that is because if Fedora is installed first, the Ubuntu installer (the Desktop edition) cannot “see” it. It is not capable of detecting LVM volumes (partitions).
If you want to configure partitions manually, it does not matter which one is installed first. And since we are talking about dual-booting two Linux distributions, install GRUB in the MBR.
