Yes you can!!!

I currently have the following all installed and co-existing on my box:

Debian GNU/Linux 2.2
RedHat 6.2
Corel Linux 1.0   (on Win partiton)
Windoze 98
QNX Real Time Platform 5   (on Win partiton)

Debian and RH even share the same /home partition!!

There is no reason who more OSes can't be added. Well I do this as a hobby
and should warn you that its not as easy as it sounds.

LILO can directly boot Debian, RH or Windoze. QNX and Corel Linux can be
booted from Windoze boot menu.
