Complex Solaris 7 installation procedure??

Can someone give me complete step-by-step instructions on how to install Solaris 7 on an Intel machine that already has winntserver4.0 and redhatlinux6.0 running??  Comes with a good amount of points.  Also acceptable is a legitimate reference to a website that explains this successfully and clearly.
Thanks ahead of time.

I did this with Solaris 2.6 and RH 5.2 a bit back.

I found that I needed to

1.      partition the disks into three, one for each OS,

2.      install Windows first up as it overrides the boot sector of the disk,

3.      decide which boot manager you will use, Sun's or Linux's,

4.      install the OS for the one without the boot manager,

5.      install the OS with the boot manager,

6.      configure the boot magager.


After a few shots I found lilo.conf easier to use than Sun's one. I do know third party programs such as partition magic also works but I haven't used it personally.  I'd stick with lilo.conf as it configuration files are much simplier.
