are you using raid or just plain ide? the reason i ask is so i can 
understand the geometry of your hard disk's partitions (4 primary 
partitions max per ide hdd) What boot loader do you want to use? lilo? 
grub? freebsd? some commercial boot loader? are the two linux distros 
going to be based off of separate or the same kernel? lots of questions 
need to be answered before we can really help you with multibooting. 
heres some generic info for newbies. if you have any specific questions 
bother me, id be glad to help :)
