Solaris, Linux and Windows 2000 Multiboot on P4?

Can I install Solaris, Linux and Windows 2000 on a below configuration machine
Pentium® 4 Processor at 2.40GHz with 533MHz
Video Card: 64MB DDR NVIDIA GeForce4 MX™ Graphics Card with TV-Out and DVI 64NV420
Hard Drive: 40GB Ultra ATA/100 Hard Drive (7200 RPM)

During installation which ones should I do first to make it Multiboot?. Can I make a DOS partition first for installing Windows 2000 and then install Linux and then solaris?.
Is there any specific sequence that I need to follow in creating partitions?.

I was using Solaris and Windows 2000 where Solaris is the primary boot but not sure how ti works when I need to install a Linux flavor also.

Please help.

Thanks in advance.

do you really need all these O/S(es)? hehe, I'm just wondering. You can definetely have windows 2000 and linux as dual boot. However I don't know about Solaris and whether it will work as an additional operating system.

What you might wanna do is do a dual boot of Linux and Win2k and use Solaris through VMWare which of course costs money, but it's a very damn nice tool especially if u're using Solaris just as a testing/development o/s.

anyhow, just wanted to give up my 2 cents and I hope this helps!
