yes, as far as I know, its possible but I am very sorry that I am yet in learning phase, and can not help you much.

Actually, my requirement was running linux and windows servers on the same hardware, and read in some document that its possible, but unfortunately I didn't success.

I would stick to this thread, so please keep updating this thread about your doing further.

All the best.

Yes you can. If you need GUI during install, export your display over a SSH session to a local X server (linux, mac, cygwin, etc)
