160GB Partitioning - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

Hi, I have got a new Seagate 160GB Harddisk (ST3160023A). I need to make my PC to have Multiple Operating systems with a Multi-boot menu in the startup.

    Default 160GB Partitioning

    Hi,

    I have got a new Seagate 160GB Harddisk (ST3160023A). I need to make
    my PC to have Multiple Operating systems with a Multi-boot menu in the
    startup. The OS should include:

    1) Windows 98 SE
    2) Windows 2000 Advanced Server
    3) Windows 2003 Eval Edition
    4) Red Hat Linux 9.0

    What would be the best way to partition my harddisk to accomodate all
    the above. I also need to have some free drives where I can store my
    DATA + PROGAMS + MUSIC + MOVIES that can be accessed from all the
    above OS.

    Some of the Operating Systems are not recognizing the full disk space.
    Please let me know what all Software Drivers/Updates I need to use in
    all the operating system to make use of the entire 160GB space.

    FYI, I am using Intel 845 Chipset (Pentium 4 - 2.4GHz). My RAM is
    DDR-256MB.

    Thanks,
    Kamlesh

    Thanks for the information.
    I have installed Intels Application Accelerator.
    In my Win2000 Computer Management -> Disk Management Option, the drive
    size is shown as 149.9 GB. Is this correct? I was told that this
    harddisk is 160GB, then why am I shown 149.9GB in Win2000?

    149.9 GB = 1.609539e+11 bytes which is roughly 160,953,900,000 bytes.
