With VMware you would be able to run your Windows partition as a virtual
machine plus be able to install multiple distros to play around with.  I
do that all the time.  An 8GB virtual disk is enough to install a distro
and with Samba you can share the host with your virtual machines, or use
VMware's shared folders.
