Advice: ask a specific question to get a specific answer.

What, exactly, do you want to know?

MasonM,

Your right I over shot the runway on this question. What I meant to is:

1) what would be the proper procedure for installing all 3 OS's. Is it Windows, Linux and then BSD?

2)Also with the high perrormance graphics card that I have will I run into problems installing Linux and Unix.

3)Would it be better to use Lilo or Grub as a boot loader. I would like to be able to select from the OS's at boot.


Please let me know if I have given enough info

Cheers

Get bootitng from http://www.bootitng.com/

with this utility you can boot as many as you want. Create partition's to load your distributions on, or BSD, Windows, etc. & a whole lot more things you can do with this boot manager like make compressed images of your installation with all the updates done & all your favorite apps. & personal settings, then re-install the image in a few minutes instead of spending a day & half to re-format & re-install. My favorite method is to make a data partition or have a second hdd to send MY Documents too (data), this way the partitions with the operating systems have no valuable data on them & can be wiped out & restored with a fresh copy of the initial installation @ any time if you find it is running slow or you screwed it up somehow.
