    Yes, it is possible to install two OS in the same system. But for that you need to provide enough space in your C Drive also. I use Window XP and Red Hat Linux OS both in my system.

    Yes it is possible to install 2 OS on same system... But it would depend upon your computer ram and harddisk capacity...

    Yes but depending on your system, it might slow the function of your computer and might lags alot so if you'll ever install two OS, make sure to check your computer's system information first if it will be able to handle two.

    Yes I had tried this once, installed 2 OS in a PC. But As J. Rod said it could possibly slow down the system. And it was tough to manage both OS.

    yes it is possible to installing two operating system in one computer system. But some time it is possible that speed of your system is very slow so it is recommended that you install only one operating system in one computer system.

    Yes it is possible to have two OS on a computer but speed is hampered,you may also maintain the speed by using cleaner .

    I you need to run other OS only ocassionaly, I recommend installing Oracle VirtualBox and create a virtual machine. It's like emulating OS in Windows application. Very convenient. You can just alt+tab from one OS to your basic one, share folders and copy&paste between those two. Of course you can create more than just one :p

    Yup, you can install more than 2 side by side on the same hard drive you should be able to create multiple boot records and select which one you want on startup

    You must reformat & repartition your hard drive to contain multiple volumes before you begin creating a multiple-boot configuration if you've only one volume on your computer unless you are simply installing another copy of Windows XP.

    I was just wondering; how would you switch between the 2 operating systems? and also what benefits are there in using 2?
