there should be no problem, as long as you have more than one partition....
i.e. you can't install 2 versions of XP on the 'C:' partition
I currently have a registered Japanese XP Pro installed and running various applications. However, there are sometimes problems installing and trying to run English only applications. Therefore, I would like to install an English version of XP on the same huge drive and be able to dual boot the system. Then I can install all English applications to the English OS and Japanese applications to the Japanese XP OS.
Based on what I read in the MS documentation it says two XP installations can share the same drive, but it didn't talk about foreign language operating systems.
I want to proceed cautiously so that I don't lose what is already functioning, and don't compromise my validated OS that is already installed.
This is a new machine with a Celeron chip and 250 gigabyte hard drive.
