One hard drive - 2 O/S

I want to experiment a little by splitting my hard drive and putting 2 O/S on it. What is the easiest way to go about it (I have P magic if required).

Thanks for replying SANTOS7 but I need advice on how to do it rather than reasons why I should or shouldn't!

the first link has good info as does this one.
the first thing you will need to do is decide which two O/S you are going to use, if they are not the same install the older one first.....
ps. my first statement does not contain any reasons why or why not, the links offer precautionary steps that must be taken, good luck....

I have XP Pro on at the mo with a 120gb hard drive can i split drive and put 2000 on the other partition, or do I have to save everything and format.

this basically tells you you will need to install 2000 first, so saving any files to a removable media is called for relating to XP...
