    hello everybody...
    I was wondering if i could have 2 operating systems on one computer because i am having problems with my windows xp home edition sp2..and if so , can someone point me in the right direction

    Can i use two operating systems, and then delete the unwanted one?...because i dont want to delete it and then install the other one, just in case something goes bad

    Also i can get a spanish version of office xp 2006..is there any way i can change it from spanish to english??

    Lastly.. If i change or operate with 2 operating systems...can i still have all the files i have on both systems, or will i have nothing on the other operating system...

    Yes, you can have two operating systems on one computer. It sounds like you want to install the same operating system you're currently running only create a second instance. Is this correct?

    Also, describe what operating system disks you have. Do you have full installation disks, or are they recovery disks that came with your computer labeled as such?

    There is no such thing as Office XP 2006. There's Office XP, Office 2003, and Office 2007. Whatever version you have, if it's a Spanish version, there isn't a way to "convert" it to English. You'd have to purchase an English version.

    If you have a computer with two operating systems, it may or may not be possible to access files from one to the other. That depends on what operating systems are installed and on what types of file systems they were installed on. This only applies to files. It does not apply to programs. You cannot run programs from one operating system to another.
