Nothing wrong with good ol partitioning of the hard drive. I partition my drive with a fat partition, two large data partitions and then about 6 ext2 partitions before I install any OS and then I never think about it again. As far as bootloader, most of the time grub will pick up everything and set it up correctly but I also keep grub4windows on my windows install and call it from boot.ini just in case. So no worries and no surprises ever since I have done this which I started doing this method about 4 years or so ago and countless distros and versions.... ;)
