Well seeing as I am the first to have triple-booted on the N9, thought I should help others. I'm not sure how many people want to know how to do it, or not, but it is good to share knowledge. I will divide this up into installing Nitdroid and Nemo. Sadly, I have only tested a tethered boot into the Moslo Bootloader for Nemo.

I TAKE NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR WHAT HAPPENS TO YOUR DEVICE. THIS IS DONE SOLELY AT YOUR OWN DISCRETION.

Nitdroid

1. Install dual-boot kernel as described here: http://forum.nitdroid.com/index.php?topic=90.0

2. Install sillyboot. Details: http://forum.nitdroid.com/index.php?topic=91.0

3.
a. Download tarball from here: http://depositfiles.com/files/ue9wxpz49
b. copy the archive to your Nokia N9.

c. execute "as root" command

tar xjvf /path_to_archive/nninedroid_ics_alpha1.tar.bz2 -C /home/

Nemo

Assuming use of Linux Host and Harmattan Flasher installed

Create a folder on your desktop eg NemoN9
Download this http://repo.pub.meego.com/home:/marq...N9.armv7hl.rpm to that folder
Using the terminal enter

cd /file/path/to/that/folder/

rpm2cpio moslo-n9-*.armv7hl.rpm | cpio -vidu

Once completed, enter

sudo flasher -k usr/share/moslo-n9/zImage-moslo -n usr/share/moslo-n9/initrd-moslo -l -b

Your N9 should then boot to a screen with green text. Wait until it says alternate rootfs exported via usb
Your pc should auto mount. (If not, run dmesg and look for sdx where x is a letter or number, eg sdb. Then run mount /dev/sdb /media/Alt_OS or you can unplug/replug USB and repeat step three until N9 is automounted)
Once mounted, run

sudo tar --numeric-owner -xf nemo-handset-armv7hl-n950-*.tar.bz2 -C /media/Alt_OS/

When extraction is complete, unmount the device
umount /media/Alt_OS

Unplug the usb and you should get an option to boot Harmattan (Vol+) and Alt OS (Vol-). Alt OS boots Nemo. Continue through to Harmattan where you will be prompted to boot an Alt OS again (Nitdroid) by pressing Vol+. If you wish to go to Harmattan. Do nothing. To get to the screen to boot nemo, you must repeat step 4 only. Once these screen says "alt rootfs exported" unplug USB and press Vol-.

Sadly No. I attempted this initially on N950, but Nitdroid won't boot. Nemo dualboot is fine, but Nitdroid does nothing. That is what lead me to experimenting with N9

AFAIK, no, due to the way the rootfs is exported. Do like me and download a VM client such as parallels or virtual box and install ubuntu

Followed your guide but got stuck with the nemo os part.
Whenever I try to run the command
Code:
sudo flasher -k usr/share/moslo-n9/zImage-moslo -n usr/share/moslo-n9/initrd-moslo -l -b
It writes a warning about bad kernel.
any suggestions?

EDIT: Managed to handle that problem, but when I'm trying to mount my N9 into the Ubuntu (using virtual box) it gets disconnected every second..

Got this to work on the N950. Incidentally I took a screencast (on the desktop) as well as a video (of the device), and I was writing documentation about it; will upload for reference. I pretty much followed MFaroTusino's steps from his blog site: http://mynokiablog.com/2012/03/22/wo...tdroid-how-to/.

Device Firmware: PR 1.3
NITDroid Version: Alpha 4 (ICS)
Nemo Version: the latest releast (08.31.2012), but I later on decided to try the build which has Plasma Active on it.
