    GRUB will recognize installed OS'.
    install GRUB in MBR of HardDisk. on installing another Linux distro, new distro's GRUB will overwrite existing GRUB and will add entry in choice list.

    title Window XP Media Center Edition
    # root (hd0,0)
    # makeactive
    # chainloader +1

    title PC-BSD 1.2
    # root (hd0,1,a)
    makeactive

    title NexentaOS
    # rootnoverify(hd0,2)
    chainloader +1
    makeactive

    title SUSE Linux 10.1
    # root (hd0,4)
    makeactive

    could switch NexentaOS with Mac OS X

    title Mac OS X
    # root (hd0,2)
    #makeactive
    #chainloader+1
    boot
