Can I triple boot XP, Win2k Pro and Windows ME on the same PC?

I am a foreign student in Japan and I have this desktop with Windows ME OS (Japanese). Since I am not really interested in using the machine in Japanese, I installed the Windows 2000 (English) on the other partition. Now here comes XP and I would like to try it. Would my machine be okay if I installed XP for a third boot? My machine is 40GB. Would it help to install a secondary hard drive that has a higher memory capacity?

Yes, you can triple-boot with Windows XP, Windows 2000 and Windows ME. However, make sure that each operating system is on its own partition. If you've already fully partitioned your existing disks, then you should add another disk to the computer.
