assuming you are using lilo as your boot manager you need to boot into
debian and add the extra OS's to the /etc/lilo.conf file

after you have added them you need to run lilo so it picks up on them
before rebooting and testing the other configs.

The debian installer has a little bit where it adds different OS's to
your config perhaps you are using reiserfs or something else unusual on
the other partitions and this is why the debian installer didn't see
