suse and redhat dual boot?

a trio of questions.
1) can i install redhat and suse on the same hard drive?
2) what boot manager do i need to do that?
3) is there an option to use suse in a pure text mode?

YES you can install more than one linux OS on the same drive. I myself have Fedora, Slackware and Windows all on the same drive. You should be careful while partitioning though. Think how you want it setup before you start. Also, u can share the swap between them.

BOTH lilo and grub can handle it very well.

About SUSE in text mode - I'm not so sure.
