Well it isn't software as much as it is partitioning.

You can run multiple boots from a single computer if you setup a separate partition for the second OS.

If you are referrng to adding Linux to a Windoze box, MANY Linux releases will automatically add a partition and setup independantly of MS. If not, a utility like Partition Magic will help if you are unsure yourself.

Once this is setup, your computer will boot to an Available OS prompt and ask you which you want to run.

boot into windows ( or linux ) then run the other os simultaneously in vmware.
a virtual pc on top of running os.

Microsoft has something called "Virtual PC" ver. 2004

I recommend getting sufficient RAM before installing. You will be "installing" the entire OS on your hard drive. The OS will show up in a separate window and you need to use hot keys to navigate in and out. You will also need to have licenses for the OS as well.

perhaps what you mean is you would like to choose which os you boot into, one at a time? if that is true, you may be able to do it for free. it depends on the os's you wish to choose from. post the question again if that is the case. otherwise my software recommendation for a boot manager is partition magic (comes with boot magic)
