However, the Boot Camp wizard is intended for the OSX user to run it and put in a Windows CD and have *everything* else done automagically. It's really not meant to do much more than it does by default.
That said, there's no reason you can't mix and match, use BC wizard and then strike out on your own.
Personally, if I was going to triple boot on my iMac these days, I'd simply do a live resize via diskutil and install one of the EFI/GPT-aware Windows versions (x64 only, Vista/7 only). Boot Camp's wizard does a lot of very fiddly manipulation on your behalf, doing GPT/MBR compatibility tricks and the like. Once you stray off the default beaten path, an awful lot can go wrong.
