Default random question

i know its probably impossible to do this, but its worth the ask.

I want to dualboot xp and vista. But, i dont want to have to reboot my computer to change over to vista (xp as my main). My dad kvm switches with two computers. I want to ideally do the same thing, but only on one computer. Is that possible?

for example, lets say i want to do something quickly in vista, can i hit a button that pops me over to vista, and again to pop back to xp with no wait or anything?

Well, TECHNICALLY, why not just get two cases and glue them together and buy a KVM. Geez, people these days/

You could always use a virtual machine too =P.
