Wordpress: add blog inside existing blog

Hi there. I created a blog (blog A) which is assigned to a category (category A).  Now I created another blog (Blog B). However, I don't want Blog B to be it's own separate link. I want to place Blog B inside of Blog A so users will be contained to adding comments from a single url.  In other words, users can comment on Blog A or on Blog B but all from within Blog A.

Is that possible in wordpress.  I'm using the latest wp version 3.2.1

Why are two separate installations of WordPress required?  Just use Category B to handle Blog B.

I'm using a custom menu but I don't want separate urls for each blog.  If I assign category B to handle Blog B, how do I then combine both Blog A and Blog B into the same url?  Each blog needs its own comments but all on the same page.  is that doable?

But comments are comments...they are scoped to the page or post.  

I'm just having a hard time visualizing the structure and the need to do it this way.

I just created on blogger.com what I need to do on my own wordpress site... http://seozones1.blogspot.com/2011_10_01_archive.html

so basically from one url, display two posts like the above.

If I assign both of my blogs with the same category, should both show up in the url?  It doesn't though.

Okay, NOW I get it :)  

This is what WordPress Categories are for.  Assign the posts to the category or categories you want from All Posts and/or from each post's edit screen and then if you make the categories items in the menu, users will be able to click them and display a list of posts matching that category.  You can also do this with tags.

>> I'm using a custom menu

Go to the custom menu (Appearance | Menus) and the categories can be added to your menu.  There should also be a predefined sidebar widget that will list categories.

okay, that worked.  Is there a way to show the comments on that category page?  Right now, the user has to click on the blog title to add or read a comment.

Also, can the Filed Under and Tagged With ... be removed?

Sort of.  You'll need to hack the archive page a bit but people have done it:

>> can the Filed Under and Tagged With ... be removed?

Yes, those are editable via the archive page (archive.php).
