yes, there's no real difficulty. generally tho, you would install one with lilo, and then install another, and not install any boot loader. then boot into the first one, and manually add the lilo entries in /etc/lilo.conf to sort it out.

I'm sure I explained this somewhere else...perhaps a little searching?

Cut a long story short:

Install one distro (let's say, Mandy).
Install the boot-loader (Lilo).
Install RH.
Do not install RH's boot loader.
Boot to Mandy.
Mount RH root (/) partition.
Copy RH kernel image (from /mnt/RH/vmlinuz) to Mandy's [/i]/boot[/i] directory.
Edit /etc/lilo.conf.
Give extra option to boot from RH kernel.
Run /sbin/lilo.
Reboot.
