Here are some tips for a multi-boot system:

Either have separate physical drives, or create a separate logical drive for each OS you plan to install.

If you wish to share data files between different OS's, create a 5th drive for storing data files.

Make sure that you can get drivers for ALL hardware for ALL operating systems.

Install the oldest version of Windows first, onto the lowest letter hard drive.

Install each new version onto the next higher drive letter.

Windows 2000 and XP will recognize the existence of the other Windows versions and aid in setting up a multi-boot system.

As far as Boot-Magic itself, check the manual or manufactures web site for specific instructions.
