Redhat 8 and Mandrake 9 on 1 system?

I am running two hard drives, the master running win 2000 and the slave running redhat 8(taking up less tan 50% of the drive). Can i install mandrake to the other half of the slave along with redhat (i don't want to screw over redhat)? Any instructions on how to do this?

partition your slave drive and install whatever on it you want to.
i have four distros and winXP installed on one hard drive. no problems so far.

u can have RH and mandrake share the same /boot and <swap> partitions. just don't let them have the same / (root) partition.
