Sure, no problem. With the big G-buddy and the key phrases "GRUB Debian Windows" you should be able to find various howto's. Two links:

Happy playing

Don't forget the multiple dual-boot threads here on LQ.

If the box in question has the resources to support it, you should also consider VMware's (0-cost) VMserver.

In order of importance:
  1. RAM
  2. CPU speed
  3. free HD space
