multi boot 3 operating systems

Hello everyone.
I've a Fujitsu-Siemens laptop that I want (if possible) to install from scratch on 3 different partitions Mandrake, Win XP and Win 2000. I'm after some advise please on which order to install the O.S.'s. If having 3 O.S.'s will cause any installation problems I can use just mandrake and Win 2000.
Thanks for any help

You need to install your Windows OS's first. I'd install 2000, then XP and then Mandy in that order.
When you do your install of Mandy, Lilo should pick up your Windows installs and add them automatically to the bootloader.
