    well then it sounds good, basicaly you will have to format your disk, then parition it into 3 partions, boot, and one for each linux version. then create an identical partion table on part of your hd, from there you will have to set everything up as you would want it, then you will need a program to make an iso of that, and then burn it to a cd and see if it works!
