No further muss is required, I have quad-boot and have never had to download third party garbage, etc. to get a multi-boot working.

I think one caveat is that you must install the "oldest" OS first, else the boot loader will not recognize the newer OSs - so as long as you are installing W7 last, you should have no problem.
Ok, so what if you (I) want to run xp, Win 7 32 and Win 7 64? I tried and it would not see xp. wiped it out completely. When i installed Win 7 32, bootloader gave two options, Xp or 7. After installing 7 64, no Xp. And to get it on Xp right now. Which means i formated the HDD partitions were Win 7s were and repaired the bootloader, cause 7 seemed to have killed it, via the Xp cd. Problems!!! AH!!!!!!!!!!
