[Nottingham] Multi-booting

Does anyone have any experience with the SuSE boot manager (or others)? I'd
like to create a DOS partition for old games because it's a real pain
getting DOS to work under XP, but I don't really know where to start with
this - is it even possible? My current disk/partition setup is as follows:

HD 1 - 40GB, Windows XP
	Partition 1: 39GB, NTFS
	Partition 2: 1GB NTFS
HD 2 - 20GB, Linux
	Partition 1: 18GB, FS?
	Approx 2 others created by Linux during installation, FS?

Can anyone suggest how I could alter the above to create a dedicated DOS
partition? Any help/pointers appreciated,
