Can LILO allow me to triple boot?

I'm running WinXP Home on a drive Raid 0 array, and just installed Mandrake 10 community download edition on a Hitatchi 90gb 8mb cache IDE hard drive. A while ago I bought Suse Linux 9.0 from Fry's electronics but it would not install back then now I've got mandrake installed and updated and everything. Running LILO graphical bootloader. Can I install SUSE with Mandrake and Windows XP installed? I'm very new to Linux but I don'w want my hard earned cash to goto waste. The question is can I just plop the first Suse disk into my cdrom and reboot onto it and will it install itself without hurting anything else? Thanks.. Keith E. Whisman

yeah... it should work, you just need to have proper / and /boot partitions of each distribution of linux you want to install and proper entries in you /etc/lilo.conf file, but triple booting is done all the time
