Is it possible to install another distro?
I would really, really like to have a server with another distribution (I would like to try Arch, for example; if anyone here says it is possible and not against rules I’ll try it locally and probably deploy it on a droplet), but of course DO can’t provide every single one of them; could I download an .iso file on a droplet, created another partition and put it there, then boot it with GRUB and install a distro on the main partition?
(It’s weird how we can select Arch, which can’t be installed, as a distribution and not Fedora, which can)
