How to setup multi-boot system

  1. I need help from you SME out there, How to setup a Multi-OS boot system using <Win98> <XP Pro> <Vista Ultimate 64> on three separate SATA hard drives. All there is required for operation.
    First, I created a RAID stripping with three SATA drives. Using XP Pro partitioned the Array and formatted into three logical drives. Installed XP Pro first without a problem, but my Plextor optical drive would not recognize Win98 CD and stopped any attempts for installation.

    1. Is it even possible to setup multi-boot OS in RAID configuration?
    2. Can multi-boot OS be setup on separate HDD in non RAID configuration?
    3. Which sequence should the OS be installed? Assuming Vista 64 is last.

    Windows 98 – drive 01, FAT32
    WinXP Pro – drive 02, NTFS
    Vista Ultimate 64 – 03, NTFS

    Thanks in advance.
