i was wondering if it would be possible to put linux on a scsi drive that i'm currently using for storage and then start up linux simply by choosing that drive at startup?

You can install linux to your SCSI drive, the best thing to do then would be install GRUB boot loader and put your different OS's in there so you can choose which to boot up.
