Bug Solaris 8 installation

I am currently using Windows Xp and can it is possible to install Solaris on another drive without removing XP.
I have Solaris 8 with me.For installation of Solaris does it require logical partition? or can i install directly in another drive by booting from cd.If so Plz tell me the procedure to install it,as i was new to unix.

ThanQ

rakesh_s2020,

If you have already instlled windows Xp and have allocated all the disk space. Then I would suggest looking at VMware to be able to use both windows and Solaris.
