Installing Win2k and Windows 2003 Server on the same machine

Can I install Win2000 and Windows 2003 Server on the same machine? The constraint is that the machine has a single hard disk drive. If the installation is possible, how can I do it, and what other options do I have?
You can install both on the same machine. During setup of the first OS, create and select an installation destination partition that is approximately one-half the size of the hard drive. Then install the second OS into the other half. During each startup, you can select which OS to boot. You can also configure booting to automatically boot into one or the other by default if you don't make a selection (System applet's Startup and Recovery).
