Multi operating systems

I have Windows XP Pro installed on a 300GB hard disk, and Linux Suse 9.3 Pro on an 80GB hard disk. If I install Xandros Desktop Deluxe 3.0 on the 300GB hard disk, will its Boot Manager recognize the three operating systems? Will it let me select which operating system I would like run?

The last time I tries Xandros it just overwrote my old bootloader without asking what I wanted to do. It didn't even recognise the other distros I had on my system. I am sure things have changed but make sure you have a Suse CD to boot from and reinstall grub if Xandros overwrites the mbr and does not detect the other OSes.
