There's a piece of software out there called BOOTPART that will let you set this up.  I've done it with NT, Linux, and Win95.  I have a copy if you need it.  You'll need to install LILO on a superblock of the mbr.  READ the instructions on it, it's pretty easy.

I set my PC with Linux, NT, and BeOS.
I installed 3 primary partition for 3 OS and a logical volume with 2 other logical partition.
I started with NT on first primary partition, second was Linux (with Lilo on the partition boot sector, not on the MBR), third BeOS.
With the bootpart utility, I save the boot sector of Linux and BeOS as 2 file, I set the entries in the boot.ini file (NT Boot Manager).

With Win95/98 it's the same thing: you only must remember to set the partition for Win95/98 as active before the installation of Windows 95/98.
