plain and simple: install Windows on a small partition, then use a Linux/UNIX install program to automatically setup your UNIX partitions, and then the LILO, or Grub (two dual boot proggies). after this is done, LILO or Grub will detect other OSs on your computer (windows, NeXT, OS/2, etc...) and allow you to boot into upto four different ones. I suggest putting UNXI/Linux on it's on partition due to speed problems with FAT32 and FAT16 file systems. Whew! got all that?
