SSD and Multi boot

Is it possible to multi boot with an SSD, I was thinking about getting one, possibly 80gb, I have a triple boot system, and don't really want to lose them.

Of course it is possible - just like from any 80GB disk. But you do not have a lot of space. Figure 20GBs for a Win7 and 40 GBs for a Vista system. That would leave you a little for a Linux. But you have to move the user data someplace else.

Thanks, I'll look to a 120gb.
