    You can, using microsoft virtual PC. you can use linux from windows, tis good if you're ready to commit all the way. But you need a good amount of RAM. Cause you are using both Operating Systems at a time.

    Unless I did not read the original poster correctly, we are talking about installing the OS onto an actual harddrive as a real OS (like a dual boot, for instance), not installing it into a virtual machine like VPC. In which case, AFAIK Giro is correct.
