I assume that yaboot allows to choose from several kernels,
so having different kernel available for booting is possible.

d-i has a "os-detect-compoment" that can "see" allready installed
operating systems.

The only obstacle I see that _can_ block "triple boot",
is the size of the (single) boot partition.

In other words:  dive into the PowerPC test installations
