Default Multi-boot system with Mac

Multi-boot system with Mac
I would know as is simple to use linux systems and bsd (and perhaps also solaris) on a system mac.

Who has a mac, could you tell me how does the live openbsd and maybe even some Linux distros?

You'll want to use the rEFIt boot manager. It makes things easier, even thought it's possible to just use the standard firmware loader to boot other operating systems. I have not tried the latter. If you do want to use the firmware loader, then you'll want to use eLilo or GRUB 2 (unstable) as your bootloader because they support booting on EFI. Installation and compatibility will vary based on distribution. I'm not sure if you can even run OpenBSD on current Macs; I'm not sure of hardware support. I know that FreeBSD is still flaky on Macs.

Wi-Fi should not be a problem on Linux. I know that FreeBSD has an ongoing project to support MacBook hardware. You may want to check on the wiki page what hardware is supported.
