Can I install linux double boot on Mac OS?

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hi everybody!

I bought a new Mac OS system and I want to know if I can install Redhat Linux as a dual boot on my laptop. I have many codes that work very well on Redhat and I prefer not to make changes on them, to make them work on Mac OS.
