Karl,

Of course it can be done, Grandmaw Linda who already has a nice Ubuntu 
installation in her computer and is happy with it could install Windows 
after Linux but:

    1 - She would have to repartition her HD.

    2 - As Windows messes with Grub she would have to reinstall Grub.

It doesn't seem so easy.

Compared to this Wine ou even Vbox are piece of cakes.
