dual linux booting

I know there's been many posts on XP/linux booting

but can anyone point me in the direction of a good tutorial on dual linux booting?

i have mandrake 9.0 running as well as XP
I want to install RedHat 8 as well without screwing up the whole hard drive (as I have done before)

many thanks

That depends on what boot loader you want to use. Is it NTLDR, or Grub

LILO as it happens

Grub has always returned "Error 28...unable to fit into upper memory" on the first reboot for me.
Lilo on the other hand has always worked OK

Does it make a difference??
