Those two should run fine on NT, but not everything you run on 95 will
necessarily run well under NT (Win32 is not necessarily compatible with
Win32, in other words - welcome to Microsoft's API-du-jour philosophy).

I believe if you install NT on the drive with Win95, it will install
itself to its own directory and automagically set itself up as "dual

You can also get a product such as System Commander, or if someone
around there has a copy of OS/2, install its Boot Manager; these will
allow you to install different operating systems on different
partitions, and select one at bootup.
