Windows 2000 Server/Windows Server 2003 Dual Boot - Windows Server

I have been asked to provide a dual boot server using both Windows 2000 Server and Windows Server 2003 Std Edt. Can anyone tell me whether this is possible and if so where to look for details on how to do it. Many Thanks...

    Yes possible. To do a clean install, either boot the Windows 2000 install
    CD-Rom or setup disks. The set of four install disks can be created from
    your Windows 2000 CD-Rom; change to the \bootdisk directory on the CD-Rom
    and execute makeboot.exe (from dos) or makebt32.exe (from 32 bit) and follow
    the prompts.

    When you get to the point, delete the existing NTFS and or other partitions
    found. After you delete the partition(s) abort the install, then again
    restart the pc booting the CD-Rom or setup disks to avoid unexpected drive
    letter assignments with your new install. Create a partition sized for your
    Windows 2000 install and continue the install.

    Upon completion boot the Windows 2003 install CD-Rom and install to the
    unallocated space on the drive.
