Lightbulb Unorthodox Multi-boot on Multiflavor System on single sata hdd


I am attempting to make a multi boot master system for a class I am doing as a student teacher at my school.

I am running a 86x system with a 2.2 GHz AMD, 2Gb DDR-RAMM, and a single 250Gb SATA Harddrive.

The end result that I am trying to acomplish is a multiboot with Fedora 2, Windows Xp Home, Mandrake Linux 10, SuSE 9.1, Free BSD 5.1, Mac OSX, and Red Hat Linux 9.

The only snag that I am hitting is how to get the boot loader to recognise the different systems and boot them I would like to use GRUB but i am up to using other boot loaders. I have been able to partition and install easily but ive only been able to load 2 systems at any one time.

So Someone help PLEASE!!!!!

Thanks in advance

This is what my new plan is:

1) Install Macro$haft Windows XP
2) Install Fedora 2 with GRUB on the MBR
3) Install the other OSes without thier bootloaders
4) Mount the OS partitions onto Fedora
5) Locate the boot paramiters for each drive
6) Configure GRUB to load the boot paramiters for each other OS
