Fresh FC3 Install - Dual Boot Fedora Core 3 Workstation/Server Possible ?

Hello all, this is my first post, as I am a Linux noob. ( I do have some experience with Sun Solaris 2.6 on Sparc 2 & 5 hardware. )

I have the following hardware setup:

PC Chips M811LU motherboard
1.6 GHz Duron CPU
120 GB Maxtor HDD
256 MB PC2700 DDR RAM
cheap video card

Since I want to get the most out of my Linux box, can I install Fedora Core 3 as both a Workstation and a Server, in a dual-boot configuration ?

Thanks in advance,

Yes this is possible.

Just partition your hard disc so that you install fedora twice. When it installs the bootloader the second time it should find the other installation. Be sure that you select a new install option when installing the second one so that it doesnt just try and "upgrade" the first install.
