Slackware and Mandrake

I currently have a dual-boot system running Mandrake and Windows XP. I want to know what to do so I can run Mandrake, Slackware and Windows at the same time. I know I have to give slackware its space but I want to know what to do during the installation with Lilo, I already have lilo installed in the MRB.

When it comes to setting up lilo; You have 2 choices.

1. Reinstall lilo when installing Slackware 9.1. You need to add in Mandrake and WinXP entry as well.
2. Do not install lilo or configure lilo during S9.1 installation, but edit the /etc/lilo.config in Mandrake.

Both would yield similar results.
