you can install linux (pref red hat 6.1) : must have already a partition or use partition magic ;
linux erase master boot precedent, install its own an LILO, which is a program that permit to launch another system (dos, w95, W98, NT, SCO...)
the partition containing first the other system is not modified

other possibilities with SCO, but no so easy.

Yes, Naturally depending on which UNIX you want to load.
There is a PC-UNIX available that you can load and during the installation it asks you if you wish to replace existing system or have a duel boot. Various universities use it all the time for training with.

If you want both running at the same time, the short answer is No.
