Can I install Windows XP twice on the same machine and indicate when I boot which installatiion I want?

Question

I would like to have an installation of Windows XP that is "clean" with only what I need to do my work and one that contains a variety of software that my kids and I install that may make the system unstable. Imagine a disposable installation where I would not care if I lost it all and one that I want to be rock solid. Can I install Windows XP twice on the same machine and indicate when I boot which installatiion I want?

Thanks for your help.
