Yep, no problem. Stick another hard drive in and install XP on that.

When booting, you will be given the option of which XP you want to boot into.

If you have any partitioning tools and the existing drive is big enough, you don't even need a new drive.

Why not but two removable drive caddies. ? Insert one of them and put a HDD in each of the caddies.

When you want to run the machine insert your caddy. When he wants to run the machine insert his

quick and simple
