Yep, it's called a parallel install and you can do it BUT there are some issues you'll need to face:

1) You must install another copy for the second one. You can't just install them both using the same CD key. It's a violation of the EULA, and you'll find that one or the other won't update.

2) You'll have twice the overhead on the system - without any significant benefits from it.

3) You'll have difficulties accessing the data from one installation from the other one. In the event one crashes, it's gonna be a real chore to transfer the stuff from one to the other.

4) Imaging software (along with a good backup program) can eliminate most of this - and at a cost far less than an additional copy of XP would cost you. Then, in the event of a crash you can be back up and running within 20 minutes.
