Question Multi-Booting Help

OK I have researched how to do this for a while but I am still not completely sure.

I would like to boot Linux RedHat 9, Windows 98 and Windows XP on my computer. I am installing them in that order. I have 4 hard Drives. My 40GB master will run Linux. A second 5GB slave will run 98. Another 40GB will run XP and the last hard drive is 250GB and will hold all my videos, music, games etc. I currently only have XP running on a 40GB with the 250GB. I will have to create 2 FAT file systems and 2 NTFS to run Linux and 98.

My problem is that I have my 5GB and 250GB attached to an IDE PCI card and not my mainboard. Will Win98 see those drives there or will I get stuck with only Linux? And how do I go about formatting each of the drives? And do I use linux or use DOS to format them?

If anyones sees a problem please tell me. This is my first time multi-booting. Thanks.

98, XP, Then Linux using Lilo or Grub

I personally would partition one HD and Linux does not use NTSF.
