Default Install multiple OS-Win Server 2003 and XP Home

Is it possible to install mutiple OS on HP Pavilion a630n Desktop PC ?
My system has OS recovery CD installed on the hard drive (I don't have a seperate OS installation CD). Now I wanted to install Windows Server 2003 on it, and then install Oracle.

My system has 2 partitions one for Win XP Home OS and second for recovery partition. Do I need to make additional partition and install Win Server 2003 on it ? or need to have an addtional hard drive ??

Gurus please provide me few steps to proceed and install second OS.

Thanks in advance.

Use the Easus Home Edition Partition Manager. Partition your Home Edition drive. Then install your Server 2003 on top of the free space that you had.

Attempt that, also know that using a partition manager comes with risks.
