Can you run multiple operating systems on one machine?
Yes.

For example I would like to switch to Linux without completly droping windows XP. (I realize this isn't exactly a LW problem, so I will delete this post after a few days or after I get a reply.) And since I have never used Linux I need to know what version is the best and how I can get it.
For beginners I'd recommend a "commerial" distribution like SuSE (www.suse.com) or RedHat (www.redhat.com) as they come with a handbook. Well, if you think you can manage it without a handbook then you can get the ISOs here (or try LW):

Some people say Gentoo Linux is quite good (www.gentoo.org).
