Depends. On sooo many things... ;-)

Is your computer using BIOS or UEFI? Do you have MBR or GPT
partitions in place? Shall the different systems be aware of
each other? Is it intended for them to share resources?

If you can answer with "yes", "yes", and "let's see", the
following article is probably quite helpful for you:

For this to be valid, I simply assume that you have a sufficiently
recent PC that no longer uses a BIOS, and you will prepare your
disks using GPT. Those are a lot of assumtions, though. And as I
said initially, there is no definite answer, because the question
contains too many variables. Does not compute. :-)
