    You can have more than one OS on a machine.

    However, they normaly won't appear as 'folders'. Usualy there will be a selection screen on startup to chose which OS to boot.

    If your talking about 2 OS's on the same drive and partition both in the C:\windows folder then no.

    You could have a 'Windows' folder and a 'Windows1' folder (or what ever you choose)

    They have to be in different directories or Windows gets it's knickers in a twist.

    With dual boot Windows NT (C:\winnt) and XP (C:\windows) it will default to a different directory. eg Winnt.001 etc so it will nto use the same root folder.

    While you *can* have more than one copy of Windows on a drive I would suggest that this is a bad move.

    I've seen too many such systems get into a complete muddle mostly because of badly written software installation progs.

    Because of Windows habit of dropping things like DLLs in seemingly random places I normaly keep windows versions apart on separate drives!
