You would probably want to install Linux first and let that handle the booting.

When all else fails...Ham Radio!

I still have the same old HP DV9700T laptop I've had for years...still kickin'

just install ubuntu or suse last and they should install grub. Not 100% sure if it will handle all of those operating systems, but it's worth a try.

And if it was only linux and windows you would want to install windows first. Because then when you install linux it will install it's own bootloader. If you do it the other way (linux first) then you have to separately install a bootloader since windows mbr will not recognize that linux is installed.
