Smile dual boot xandros and freespire

Hi i am a newbie to linux and i would like to install more than 1 linux disto. How can i do that.I have surfed around ubuntu and others like mandriv but that was not for me. so far i have found freespire and xandros to be more to my liking. can anyone tell me how to do a dual boot with the two if at all possibe.

I tried to do a dual boot but one knocks out the other what am i doing wrong.

So far i have windows 2000, xp and xandros on the hard drive.

In my experience, Xandros can handle multi-boot with anything by default. Just install the other one first and Xandros second.
