Did something like that many years ago (probably at the time of my last post here!)…

I used to just edit the startup script and add other oses, linking them to other keys on the keyboard.
The default startup script is a file on a small hidden  hfs standard partition, that you can mount under os x or linux using the mount command (perhaps wil be already monted on linux). Can't remember the name of the file, but there were just 2 or 3 of them on that partition…

Here you can find a script written to boot 4 different oses (linux, mac os x, mac os 9 or CD), you can easily eadit it to fit your needs (or edit directly the one you already have): http://www.jackoverfull.com/Downloads/Download_Articoli/multiloader.zip
