    Yes, that sure is possible. Grub or Lilo will do fine.

    They are boot loaders that you see when you start up your computer. They let you choose which partition to boot, like if you have an SuSE partition, Windows partition, Mandrake partition. Here's a couple of links if you'd like to know more:
