	install windows on approx 10gb (9GB C: / swap drive =3D 1024mb approx)

	install etc.
2nd Debian using a partion of 4.5GB / & 512MB swap install etc
3rd Freebsd using a  4.5GB / & a 512MB swap install etc

And boot using the bsd loader

Qemu,
though for this you ideally need large amounts of RAM. RAM is remarkably
cheap now, though not on laptops.
