I use OS2's boot manager (now included in Partition Magic 3.0) for
multiboot capabilities... the only thing you need to be aware of
is that some OS's use BIOS and some don't for drive IO. Plus,
some use it until they load their IDE drivers... the PC110's BIOS
will swap drive order depending on your settings and it's POST scan
of devices... it is possible, then, for the drive ordering to change
mid-boot on some OS's. Atleast, this has been my experience.
