    Hi and Welcome !

    Quad boot setup is as easy as dual boot. Are you going to install all OSes in a Single Harddisk or multiple harddisks?
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Hmm..just a suggestion.
    Quad booting is like wasting your disk resources..and time in maintaining those.
    those OSs which you are not going to use most. cause you can run only 1 OS at a time.
    Just Virtualize them.

    Is this a homework question?

    Install OSes in this order :

    Windows 98 SE, Windows XP Service pack 2, windows vista and Linux(Suse).

    Installer of every OS will detect existing and setup multiboot itself. Just create 5 partitions before starting installation.

    1. Primary -- Windows 98 SE
    2. Primary -- Windows XP SP2
    3. Primary -- Windows Vista
    4. Extended Partition
    5. Logical partition, ext3 filesystem, 10-15GB for / of SuSe
    6. Logical Partition, SWAP, 512MB.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
