Dual Booting MBR/1st sector

Hi all,

I am installing a few distro on my PC. I'm planning to use Fedora's Grub as the bootloader in MBR. Because I'm also installing other distro such as JDS and NLD which have their own bootloader image, I don't want to put all the distro under Fedora's Grub. Is it possible that I installed the JDS, NLD's bootloader onto their respective 1st sector of their boot partition and then configure the Fedora's Grub to boot them up?
