First, what follows is a list of sunsite mirrors in the UK you can try
If the new system comes preinstalled with Win95, as they all seem to
nowadays, you can use it to connect to the Internet right away and get
your docs. I'd suggest at least the Installation HOWTO, along with the
various mini-HOWTOs on multi-booting.
This can work either way, one drive or two. 4.3Gb sounds like enough
for these three OSs, though. Boot loaders are a matter of preference
and tolerance for steep learning curves, either will work. You're
right, order of install is very important, but it depends on what you
want to accomplish.
I can give exact instructions on partitioning, installing, and
configuring boot loaders, but I'd need to know how you want to proceed.
I have successfully run systems booting all of the following from lilo,
ntldr, and Boot Manager (OS/2): NT4, DOS, RedHat, Slackware, OS/2, and
Win95. How to do it varies with how you want to approach it, so if you
don't get enough help here, email me and I'll send you a brief list of
questions to answer, followed by instructions based on your answers.
