I beg to differ, I have Windows XP x86, XP x64, Server 2003 x86, Server 2003
x64, Vista x64 and OS X x86 Tiger 10.4.5 quadruple booting on my Sempron
2600. Installing is the tricky part.
XP needs to be on the System Partition, OS X x86 needs to be on a bootable
partition, Vista can be on a logical partition. Vista even adds OS X to its
own boot entry (not the legacy one).
I detailed my experiences here:
