Question Selectiong operating system to boot

Hi all!

Here is situation I have: I have PC and 30GB HDD. On that PC I want to install Windows XP, Windows 2003 Server and SuSe Linux Operating Systems, each on its separate partition.

What software could help me with problem that when I turn my PC on, I can choose operating system to boot, and that in any operating system started I can't access other operating systems partitions?

Thanks for these guides!

One more problem to solve, is there a way to hide one OS partition form other?
Example: I boot up my WinXP and can't access Win2003srv or linux partitions, or another example I boot up W2003srv and can't access WinXP or Linux partitions.

(Well I know that Windows OS can't access ext3 fs partitions but this is just an example).
