If you are not wedded to ESDI, the WD7000FASST SCSI Controller on my machine,
if it sees more than 1 bootable partition, asks which one to use.  I've only
tried it with 2 (DOS & Bell Tech), but I can see no reason why 3 wouldn't

I like this board, and the Columbia Data Products software that comes with

Good luck
