This only allows one system at a time to operate, I already have this working properly.  I want both up at the same time.

Not without some special software.  Something like VMWare (http://www.vmware.com) will help you run both W2K and Linux simultaneously.

Check it out.  It's a great product and I use it all the time for testing.  If you have a decent machine with lots of RAM you can run multiple OS's at once.

No, there is not. Bot processors, memory, video card can not be controlled simultaneously from two operating systems.

A blade server would be one of your only possiblities... That would probably be a bit pricey for your situation..

Hmmm, this is along the same lines as "never say never".  There are OTHER possibilities and I've noted a 100% software solution.
