Unhappy Ability to boot 2 OSes at once

This is my first post to the forums here at and I really like the services being provided here.

I am new to Linux (I installed Redhat 7 a few years back but didn't have much time to learn how to use it). Currently I have Redhat 9 installed. While I was doing some research on the ability of Linux to run Win32 programs I heard of a program that got me pretty excited but I have not been able to find any information on it since I originally heard of it.

Basically it was a program that allows you to boot two OSes at the same time. It said something about the OSes having to share the same resources etc. and that because of that it can run slower at times. I would like to be able to boot to windows to work with some programs that won't run using wine. It will also be easier to do that than to teach my wife how to use linux

Does anyone have any information on this type of a program?
