Linux certainly can run from a separate partition, as I have WinLinux set-up on my machine at home, which is primarily for Win98.

Linux can support multiple OSs through LILO.

You may run into a problem on the NetWare side. NetWare, of course, requires DOS to boot. You can't use a Win9x command.com to boot it, though.

A product called System Commander can perform the task of allowing you to boot from up to a hundred or more OS on one machine. I am using it at home to dual boot between DOS and WIN 98. I have had no problems with this product.

And for a new approach...VMWare (http://www.vmware.com )allows you to run multiple OSs at the same time. I use it, and it rocks. I run a win2k network in 3 vms on my machine for testing. However, it does have some heavy hardware requirements if you need to use it in a production environment. On a dual 733 with 512 mb ram, it runs fairly well.
Just a thought.
