debian testing/stable and sid in same pc


i wanna use debian testing/stable and sid in same PC.
(a mad debian usr)

i just need xfce or gnome in testing/stable and will store my song, download and doc in that partition.

for new software i wanna install debian sid (for kde and gnome and other software) in another partition.

how i can manage the grub menu.conf
should i create a partion called /boot

is it possible to use another little pattion for debian HURD.
(if yes any hint !)

/dev/hda1 C: 6GB NTFS windows XP
/dev/hda5 D: 6 GB NTFS
/dev/hda6 swap 256mb
/dev/hda7 reiserfs 14 GB debian testing
