make it dual boot with windows 2000 advanced server.

from the cd the only way i can run setup for windows 2000
server is that i boot from the cd however i am afraid if
i do so i will be making changes to the MBR cause of
which my xp may become unusable can anyone recommend me

You can boot from the CD or install in XP by running winnt32.exe from the
I386 folder on the 2000 CD.

After install you'll need to replace the NTLDR and NTDETECT.COM files on C:
with the ones on the XP CD in the I386 folder
