OpenBSD will not be able to boot if its partition falls beyond 1024
cylinders. Also, unless you install every other package, I don't see a
reason to allocate 3Gigs for OpenBSD. It can be reduced by a gig.
Otherwise I see no problems.
I have 8 OSes on 2 disks :-)

I am thinking of allocating space for different distros on my 40 GB hard
disk at home.
a) Have a 4.5 GB for XP ( dont flame)
b) plan on 1.5 GB for backup ( Important files like resume and other docs
in case I remove XP and put somethin else)
c) Debian woody - 10 GB ( Is this too much)
d) Gentoo version 1.4 ( 2 cds) - 5 GB ( Is this sufficient)
e) FreeBSD 5.1 ( 4 cds) - 6 GB
f) Open BSD 3.3 (1 cd) - 3GB ( is this 2 much)
g) RH 9 - 7 GB ( is this 2 much) - plan to do some development for SANE
h) LFS ( Linux from Scratch) - 4 GB
and a common swap space of 512 MB ( have physical RAM of 256 MB)
Looks like I have already exceeded 40 GB.
( I will add the distros slowly over time. plan to use GAG boot loader with
booter in root partition of each distro)
