i would partition the hd's into 2 disks with 2 500 gb partitions each (4 partitions total).

i would install windows first. then install each of the linux distros from their live-usb.

for the last one, i would tell the installer to write the grub to the disk's mbr and setup the pc's bios boot priority to that disk so that the 4 entries can be selected at boot up.
