Triboot Questions

I am trying to setup my computert so it can triboot with SuSE,Fedora Core and Windows.I have been trying to do this for a while but need some questions answered to help me.

1.Can QTParted create extended partitions and if so can it create ext3 partions inside of it?

2.How can you create 2 Logical partitions in an extended partition?

3.Is it best to resize ntfs,swap,extended or resize ntfs and delete swap and extended?

4.Can an LVM partition be overwritten with a ext3 partition?
