Yup. get a distribution like Red Hat and install a boot loader like Grub, or
Lilo, and you can specify at the boot prompt which os you want to load.
There are also more expensive boot loaders such as Magic Boot, but
something like lilo should work fine.
With liloall you have to do when the loader stops is type something like
Linux, and you are in Red Hat. Another option might be Windows and it loads
