yes you can, you have setup two partitions. there are some utilitys that can help.
if you are starting with freah disk partitioning it will be easy.  But if your hard drive is already up
you will have to use a program to resize your partions.  partion magic will help or  do a web search for a utility called fips (this will help with FAT 16) there might be one with FAT32 help..
when installing linux you can configure LILO (I don't know what this stands for) but from there
you can choose to boot more than one OS.

let me know if need anymore help.  strmtrpr@bellsouth.net

defrag your hardrive first. before you use fips( it will work). then create your linux partion with linux fsdisk.
