Not sure why you would want to?, but that's my question not yours. :-)

Anyway From my expierence I would say NO. Several of the core components are integrated with the OS so one would always be overwritten by the other or at least older by newer. Won't let you go back.

No, you cannot install more than one version of IE at a time. It automatically changes the .dll files and so forth. I don't think you have the option to pick your install directory either so even if you have more than one harddrive, you can't do it.

Well I want to do it for Web Design purposes. To test web pages in different browsers. Thanks for help! :-)

One possibility is to use some software like Connectix Virtual PC or VMware Workstation to create virtual PCs on your computer, you could then install a different version of IE on each virtual PC without any changes to your host PC.

Simply NO, as previously said. I gather you want to check usability of web pages on older versions of MSIE. The best way to do this would be to get an older PC and load an old version of MSIE on it and then network it to your machine. The older unitwould then work as a testbed to view the page across the network. This would also enable you to look at both displays at once.

BTW I have a friend who dows similar work and he has 6 PCs set up with different browsers and versions (4 of the PCs are 486DX), walk into his workshop and you are surrounded by teh same webpage. What is interesting is the colour and display variations you can get from the same source code.
