Although you should not have any problems, I suggest an alternative
(easier) way: Install a separate boot manager product. If you want a free
one, go for Ranish Partition Manager's Boot Manager, or commercial - System
You should not encounter any problems....just remember this thing - make
sure that at least the boot code (e.g. /boot in Linux) of each OS resides
below the 1024 cylinder boundary. Otherwise the OS will not be able to boot
off the hard disk.
