Depending on what you're looking 4, u may be interested in the following idea. 
Don't yet know how well it will work, but suspect it'll do quite well.

If u have the ability to boot from usb drives, why not install each OS to a 
separate drive? Hell. U can make usb drives cheap enuf by getting hold of a 
drive and placing in a case for usb disk drives at a fraction of the cost of 
ready made usb disk drives. And it aint that hard. As I understand it. Each 
usb drive will have its own boot info, so u wont need to worry about whether 
grub overwites anything since it will write only ro the disk in Q.. Of course 
this would mean having a mobo (MOtherBOard) that can handle such. I consider 
this somewhat easier that some of the tutorials I've seen out there. But then 
again, we each have our own ideas as to what we think should happen

Just an idea to mul over
