how to have a 2nd linux installed to hd?


hello
i have two hard drives: on one, there is win xp; on the other, there is kanotix64 (based on knoppix) and a spare partition. i want to install a 2nd linux (kalango) to the free partition. how do i have to set up the installation to be able to boot to all of the 3 systems i will have? will it be ok to just choose to install the kalango loader to mbr of my first disk (where the kanotix grub is)?
thanks in advance

Whatever boot loader you're using now, just edit it's config file to add the 3rd OS. if Grub it's /boot/grub/menu.lst, if Lilo it's /etc/lilo.conf
