It should be possible somehow. This weekend I managed to install the
Debian 2.2 base system on my computer parallel to the already existing
RedHat 5.2. I had to fiddle a little bit, since I am not yet too
familiar with my computer (RedHat was preinstalled) and the slightly
different installing procedure of potato. 

I just cannot tell you exact details how to do this on your computer,
since I am using a different platform (Alpha) which has a boot
selector possibility in its BIOS included and my computer has two
harddisk drives, one exclusively for RedHat, the other for Debian.
