Dual and Triple booting question


I'm going to attempt to make a dual boot system using W2K Advanced Server and Mandrake 8.2. My question is, what OS should I install first? I think I read somewhere that Windows is what should go in first.

Second question. Is it possible to have a triple boot? If I have 3 partitions can I install 3 different operating systems (W2K, Mandrake 8.2, Slackware 8.1)?

Also (this goes with the triple boot question), what if I have 2 hard drives, Primary drive (W2K, Mandrake 8.2) and the slave drive (Slackware 8.1)? Would this work?


Thanks
