Try to install your Solaris 8, there should be no problem as long as you know to manage your disks and partitions.

You disks will look something like that in Solaris:

c*t*d*s*

where * are numbers. If you have one disk only and try to put everything in there it is more likely to screw everything. It will be difficult. Give it a try, if you don't try you don't learn. It is safe if you know what you are doing. Solaris will not mess with your other OS. Do you know anything about LILO?
Good luck for now
