You simply have to make sure the installer for each distribution is made aware of the other distributions so they can be added to the bootloader configuration. Or else, install them all normally, and then install the final bootloader at the end which you can configure for all the operating systems.

Though with that many distributions, I would suggest you look into setting them up in virtual machines if at all possible.

besure windows is installed on the first disk on the first parition and then stall the rest of your linux OS but don't install grub till you get to the last one. Then you'll prolly have to manually configure grub to boot the rest if you get that far post what you get and I'll try to help you further.
