Booting triple OS's


I want to setup, booting from WinXP,Fedora,and another Linux distro.
As I install Linux OS's how do I setup boot sequences or processes?
Do I make /boot partitions?
XP has already been resized into it's own primary partition.

Jim

The way I do it is thus. I have a small partition that is shared as /boot between the distros. When I install the third, fourth, fifth,...hundredth Linux distro but choose not to install the bootloader. Then I add the new distro to the existing menu.lst file. Works for me.

Is it possible you could send me a copy of your menulist so I can see how you did it.

Thanks
Jim

This website was a pretty good idea by one of LQ's own. Here was my menu.lst as of July http://www.serversamples.com/view.php?sample=12 I don't use any of those distros anymore having settled on Gentoo (and CLFS just fer messin' 'round with).
