    I know you can do a triple on an internal drive, but I don't know about external. maybe you can figure it out, but here's my contribution:

    Use Carbon Copy Cloner to make the Tiger and Leopard partitions bootable. I've got my external currently divvied into Leopard, Tiger, and a FAT32 for Windows accessibility. Look up recovery and cloning software for your Linux OS.

    Do you have to make the 3 partitions
    before you install the 3 operating systems...?

    No, but it's much easier if you do. Decide how large you want each partition to be, partition the drive, and then you can start cloning your drive to each partition as needed. You can non-destructively partition in the Terminal by following this guide.
