Do u think this is a good deal ?

Also had a question.

So with this system I will be getting 3 OS's: vista, xp and win 7 (free when comes out). what i want to do is partition the drive into 5 segments:

c drive=xp (this will be for work, need the xp for some of the software running)
d drive=vista (keep for curiosity)
e drive=win 7 (will be interested in installing once it comes out)
f drive=linux (use this for home use, browsing, etc.)
g=empty, used for backup.

This way here, if f drive gets a virus of something that just causes havoc, I can format f drive yet still have c drive for work unharmed.

what u think, doable, how hard. any recommendations on how to get it done.

My sole advice would be...don't put multiple O/Ses on one drive, unless you intend to do backups and/or they don't matter.

Old cliche: Never put all your eggs in one basket.
