Most Linux versions install a boot manager by default.
Mine uses lilo others use grub If you just agree with most setting when this
comes up, you will most likely have a boot manager installed in the MBR of your
first hard drive with all 3 OS's installed. You should get a menu with the OS
choices and you go to which one you want to boot into.
