You can install in any order, just have a Linux boot floppy handy and 
rerun LILO when you're done (to take back the MBR).

Windows 95 takes over the MBR, I don't think Windows NT does.

The linux newsgroups have lots of discussion of this, since Linux folks 
have run multiples OSes from day 1. Anyone on the list running plan 9? :-)
