creating dual boot with win98,xp and mandrake

I wonder if somebody could tell me how to partition hdd of 80GB to install mandrake with win98 and winXp.
I already have 5GB for win98,
about 20GB for winXP,
then 30GB for data and rest is unallocated ,which i aimed for
mandrake 9.2 or 10.0.

Please, if somebody can tell me instruction's step by step how to do this.

( NOTE : I have Partition Magic, so should i use this utility or mandrake built-in tool? )

you'll need 6 GB (approx.) unallocated space for linux install.
boot to linux CDROM, choose to keep existing partitions and load on free space.
Make (keep) linux as the default MBR and edit text on others, ie. Win9x and WinXP so they will be displayed in the lilo or grub loader as;
Mandrake 9.2
