You can install as many as you like. You are limited only by hard drive space.

Linux is extremely flexible in this regard. It can boot from anywhere, even logical partitions.

If you want to run them parallel you need virtualization techniques like xen or vmware and the like.

It doesn't matter. You can install them in any order.

Just make sure after you installed all of them that you add them to your bootloader menu. If you're using grub that's menu.lst .
