Solaris/Win2k

Hello,

I'm relatively new to the UNIX world and would like to install Solaris on my system. I'm currently running win2k professional and from past experience I know that Win2k doesn't like other OSes installed after it is. I was wondering if there's a way to install Solaris on my machine without wiping it first?
