"Why settle for a dual-boot compuer system when with just a little more effort you can have a triple-boot system? Our January 1, 2001 article, Dual-Boot Linux & Windows to Get the Best of Both Operating System Worlds, discusses (1) creating a second primary partition in which to install Caldera OpenLinux on a PC running Windows 98 SE and (2) using a boot manager to select an OS at system start-up or re-start."

"Today we add the Red Hat 7 Linux distribution as a third boot-option to the existing dual-boot system created in the January 1 Dual-Boot article. A triple-boot PC with Caldera OpenLinux, Red Hat Linux, and Windows should be pretty darn slick."

"While MS Windows and Linux are different operating systems (OSs), Caldera OpenLinux and Red Hat Linux are different distributions of the Linux OS. However, for the purposes of discussing multi-boot scenarios here today, different Linux distributions are referred to as different OSs. That's done in part because by giving each Linux distribution its own separate root partition and boot identity, it is in effect treated here as a separate OS."
