    If you mean to have two different operating systems running at the exact same time, the only way to accomplish that is through virtualization. You’d install your primary operating system like normal. Then you’d install http://www.virtualbox.org (free) then launch virtualbox and use the wizard for that to install your virtualized operating systems.

    See http://www.virtualbox.org/ for how this works.

    If you mean something different, you’ll need to explain what you want to do with some more detail.

    No, the complete list of supported operating systems is on the virtualbox website:

    Since ME is a derivitive of 98 it might work with some issues, still what are you doing trying to run ME?

    In that case all of this is a waste of your time. Just use a USB Memory stick to copy it off.
