Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

You might find it easier to download VMware Server and install that one one of the OSs then virtualize the other two OSs.

    Hi, Jan5134 There is no real reason to prevent booting three or more OS'es. Check again your lilo or grub configurations - mainly, are root devices set properly and don't forget to re-run the respective boot-sector "writer". Good luck, Petko

    VMWare or Virtual PC sounds like the way to go...

    If you want to use virtual machine for an OS, I suggest VirtualBox as it is free and works very well. I am using it on a mac so I can use XP. There are versions for windows, linux and mac host machines.
