Mountain Lion, XP and Windows 8

Hi, on my pc I normally use separate hard drives for different Windows editions to get over the problem of booting one and then having the option of booting two.

On my laptop I have only one hard drive and I have had it tripple booting fine with ML,8 and Ubuntu without problem.

However, I have the need to have XP as well to run a small 32bit console app that will only run on xp or before.

If I put in XP first then 8 I cannot boot XP directly from Chimera, I have to boot 8 and then use it's boot loader.

If I put 8 in first XP messes up the 8 boot loader.

I have found a way of getting round this if it's 7&8 but it deals with the BCD which XP doesn't have.

How can I get round this?
