      If so, why are they using Windows at all? By the way, there is
      products like Bochs and VMware that allows you to run multiple OSes
      _simultaneously_.

      But I think the original question was about how to get GRUB to boot a
      number of different operating systems. If so, it doesn't really matter
      what partitions you mount in your Linux system. (Except for sharing
      data, obviously, but that's a different story.)
