How many Operating Systems Do You Boot

There have been a few people in this thread saying they can’t run Windows independently from logical partitions. It’s true you can’t install to a logical without using the Windows bootmanager, but you can clone an install there and so free up the primaries, then use another boot manager. If you use a compatible cloning tool and bootmanager then all you have to do with NT is edit the boot.ini in the clone to point to the correct partition number, (normal cloning precautions apply with NT if the parent is going to be present on the system during first boot of the clone). With Win9x there is no boot.ini so they boot fine as is. You just need your bootmanager to hide the partitions before it.
You can do the required partition tweaks manually if need be.

On another box there is an n-lited WinXP (I detest that virus-like Windows Media Player, plus I slimmed down some other components);
A third machine runs pure Windows XP, which until very recently was double-booted for testing with Windows Server 2008 (removed due to hardware incompatibilities, although it was nice and speedy).
I also run Knoppix from time to time...
