Yes, you can install both linux and windows on the same PC
You should either backup you harddrive, repartition your
disk, install both OSes, and restore data or use Partition
Magic to decrease your windows partition.

You may run Netscape, RealPlayer, Descent with integrated Kali,
Some programs looks like Mirc (kirc for example)

You should decrease Windows partition using Partition Magic
You will have some free space after that.

When you will installing linux
you will create new linux partition using linux fdisk
or cfdisk or druid (it depend on your linux distribution)
