Does anyone havbe any suggestions on either using Apple, Bootcamp, or other 3rd PArty Software so that I can run  3 Bootable Partitions (OSX & Bootcamp/Windows/Linux) ?

You need to use a 3rd party Application. Windows and Linux doesn't work well together, so you need to change some things. Below is a link that helped me to do this with Ubuntu. But the steps are the same for every 3rd operating System.
