Have you checked out VirtualBox? It’s an OPEN SOURCE (yay!) program that allows you to take a certain space on your hard drive and treat as a whole different computer — meaning you can install a whole new operating system on just that part of the computer if you want to.
I’ve been using it over the past few days and it works pretty well. It is a bit slow on my computer as my computer sucks (504 MB of RAM ftw)! I used it to install Ubuntu and explore Linux for the first time. I’m kind of a young geek so I am still exploring geek nature. If you haven’t checked it out already I do recommend it!
Check it out; there’s nothing like running Vista and OS X on the same computer, really, is there?
