alopezhigh,
Yes, but your question can mean several different things.

You can:

  • Partition your hard-drive and put linux on a separate partition and "dual boot" with another OS.

  • You can install it on a Virtual Machine, like Windows Virtual PC 2007 (available for free).

  • If you don't want a lot of hassle, you can try Wubi.

As for the original post, I would add support for Ubuntu Linux as the first distribution to use.
