Re: triple boot

Yes, but you will need to install SUSE in different partition or second, or third harddrive. Than just add it to your GRUB loader.

triple boot

you can install grub fro dos 4.0, it's setup is very easy, and you can install it on the windows platform.

Firstly, the Linux Installer may do this for you.

If it doesn't set tripple boot automatically, at least it can set double boot for you. After installing the second linux, you can merge the two /boot/grub/menu.lst file -- one from the first linux and the other from the second.

Re: triple boot

That would not work. Only one can be installed in MBR, for all other Linux oses install boot loader in the partition. Modify grub.lst to include booting from other partitions.

You don't need install two copies of grub. Grub supports multi-boot (not limited to double boot). The last installed linux usually will find all bootable partitions and properly set menu.lst file.
