It is difficult setup and windows 7 will complicated things.  There
are several ways to do it, but it is hard.  Thus many my shy away from
responding :(

Here's a section of handbook on bootloader

Problem(s) with triple booting examples

Hope this will help in some way, but in case you install three OSes
and only able to access 2, try to use a Plop/GaG/grub4dos live disk to
be able to boot the other OS and try to experiment a bit.  I am not
expert so you may decide to *not trust* my advice.  I had difficult
time booting FreeBSD and windows vista and could not succeed in an
efficient manner :(
