    Triple booting with windows and two linux distros


    I'm not new to Linux, but I've never tried triple booting before.
    I currently have Windows XP and Fedora Core 2 dualbooting, and I want to add Gentoo Linux. Fedora Core 2 (20GB partition), Windows XP (115GB partition), and a 20GB FAT32 partition are on the secondary harddrive. I want to install Gentoo Linux on the primary harddrive, which will be entirely partitioned to Gentoo (75GB).
    I should be able to mount my existing ext3 filesystem (Fedora Core) in /mnt , /opt , or /misc , correct?
    Also, is there anything i should know before installing (I will be installing Gentoo from CDs) seeing as I've never tried triple-booting or Gentoo?

    When you install Gentoo on top of Fedora and XP, it recognises these two OSes automatically.
