I once got 6 on an Intel PC boot disk:
  win3/win95/winnt, solaris, linux and os2 warp
It was a royal pain to build such a system, cause the
different os's have quirks about how they work on 
a multi boot system.  Then when one fails or needs reinstalling
you go thru heck again trying to handle it.

That aside, I don't have any idea about the genewarrior product,
or why it might be good/bad on a multi-boot Intel system. 
Booting from removable disks on Intels wasn't all that simple a 
few years back when I tried this, but may be a prefered way
to multi-oses now.  If you have a stable multi-boot system on
one disk, it is probably quicker to shift among them than using
mutliple disks.
