Sure. Just first install XP, then Vista, then Windows 7 and last Windows 8. Each of the OS's will see the previous OS and add it to it's boot loader.

Also remember that since your disk can only use 4 primary partitions, that it would make sense to create an extended partition with the rest of the disk after you have installed XP so that the other OS's will use logical partitions rather than primary ones. That way you can have more than four partitions, so you could make an additional data partition that can be used by all the OS's.
