    holding down the option key will bring up a screen that allows you to do this but there is a catch. the oses must be on sperate partitions. it doesn't allow you to choose among multiple oses on one partition

    Go to System preferences.

    Disco di avvio.. uh? the last thing from right, UP in the icons, you see the hard disk icon with a question mark.

    Click that.

    Choose the OS you want.
