Try VMware, its a Virtual Machine program, you tell it how much RAM you want it to use, how much HDD space you want the virtual machine to have, etc etc, then install the operating system in that one little window. http://www.vmware.com I think is the URL.

the bad thing about these virtual machines is that you have to provide the OS before its useful.
