Hi lifeisnowhere, welcome to NeoSmart Technologies.

It most certainly is possible.
You will need EasyBCD, but we don't consider that to be "special" software - just what everyone uses to get their dual-boot working :wink:

Assuming you haven't already installed an OS, we recommend doing it in this order:
Partition the drive (4 primary partitions).
Install Ubuntu
Install Solaris
Install XP
Install Vista

Instructions for all this can be found in the EasyBCD user manual at EasyBCD Documentation Home - NeoSmart Technologies Wiki
