you don't actually need to install bootcamp or refit to dual boot a mac. just re-install os x and when you do- repartition the HD first, leave some free space for linux, and then install the linux distro of choice onto the unused space.
Then when your mac book boots, hold the option key, and select "windows" to boot from the MBR.
