more than two OS on 1 comp?

I have a system with 3 hard drives, a 6.5 with Win 2k (drive C), 3gig (empty drive d), and 6.5 with Red hat 9 (drive f). when I boot I get the Red Hat/Win boot option and everything works fine. Can I install another Linux distro on the 3 gig? I tried with Mandrake and after the install in the boot options it didn't give me the Red Hat option. Furthermore 'drake wouldn't even boot properly (got to the desktop and would freeze up). Anyway, is it possible to have more than 2 OS on a box?

Yes, you can have as many as you want as long as you have the space.

The problem with the bootloader sound as if it didn't detect the redhat install so you would need to add it manually.
