Default Installing Multiple OS's

Yo peeps,

I was wondering if it is possible to install multiple operating systems on one hard-drive eg. C:\ , Local Disk. I have WinXP Home and I want to put Win2000 Pro on there too but Im not sure how to go about it. If any one knows and is willing to help, I would be more than greatful.

You can put it on one hard drive but you have to split the hard drive into seperate partitions.

XFX nForce 650i Ultra
Patriot PC2-6400 8GB (4x2GB)
eVGA 9800GT

120GB SG
Logitech X-530

Partition magic is the best way to go, it can split partitions.

Then run 2000 setup and install it on the new partition.

PM is only $30 on Amazon, too. You have to buy from the "Merchants", but they're easily just as reliable as Amazon.
I did it and it worked for me!
