Multi Boot

I have a new system
AMD 64 3000+ 939 pin
Gigabyte K8NS Ultra 939
512 mb Ram
2 ATA 133 30gig drives (on bus 0)
1 ATA 100 20gig drive (on bus 1)
1 CDRW (on bus 1)
It's running XP Pro on bus 0 disk 0
I want to multiboot the machine with 3 OS ,XP Pro, ,XP 64 bit, and Fedora Core 3 64 bit.
I want to put XP 64 and FC3 64 on bus 0 disk 1 (second disk)
The third disk is just for data.
Has anyone done this? if so any advice would be wonderful.

i don't think you should have any problem with that setup since all of you harddrives are on the main IDE channels

I've installed XP32 and XP64 on my system, I'm going to attempt FC3x64 this evening.
I'll post to let you know if the 3x boot works as I hope it will.

On the redhat web site it states that if you have a free partition or drive (Recommended) and install FC3_64 after windows, it will automatically configure and install LILO for dual boot, into what extent is that true?

When I installed FC3x64 I stayed with Grub as the boot loader.
When the machine boots I get 2-3 choices.
*****************
Linux...kernel XXX (this is up2dates kernel patch)
Linux...kernel YYY
Other (this points to the boot.ini file on the windows partition)
*****************
the boot.ini has 2 selections.
XP64
XP32
*****************

I have 4 OS's currently loaded.
1) XP
2) Yoper - Not booting however, hangs, may have to replace with something else
3) SuSE 9.2 Professional
4) Fedora Core 3 64

Machine is:
Built by me
ABit AV8 Socket 939 (2000 MHz front side Bus whew!)
AMD 64 3400+ Socket 939
512MB 3200 DDR Corsair RAM CL2.5
160 GB HD
Via Gigabit ethernet on board
Nvidia 5700LE

I highly advise you to load XP first if you are going to have it. Then after every OS load print or copy the Grub menu.list so you'll know what to put in the subsequent GRUB list(s). Share swap partitions where you can. Once you get then setup you just bounce to whatever one trips your trigger that day. Cool.

That's exactly what I want to do, except that having done this XP 64 doesn't start anymore. At boot time, it complains about system32/ntoskrnl.exe missing or corrupted which obviously isn't true. I don't even think it should start a 32-bit kernel anyway (or is the folder badly named?)

I think I did something in my partition scheme that it doesn't like but I don't know what. Windows XP (32-bit) is on the first partition, followed by a secondary partition containing several logical drives : XP 64-bit, Linux /boot (75MB), Linux swap(1GB), Linux / (8GB), and a shared data at the end.

What is yours? Did you change anything in boot.ini?
