Yes, provided your laptop is supported.
By the way, that would be triple-boot, not dual

No, Solaris bundled grub can boot all of them.

For a laptop, better to use SolarisExpress and frkit.

I would recommend you to download the OpenSolaris learning starter kit. In this you will find a nice practical movie clip for resizing your current working Windows NTFS partition for making space for solaris and other OSs
