Can I install Python 2.4 and 2.5 ?

I am reviewing various visualization programs (Scipy, PYGNL, etc) and
IDE´s. Some run on Python 2.4 others in 2.5.

Can I have both installed at the same time if I don´t run them

Now in Windows XP soon on Ubuntu 8

Appreciating your help,

Appreciating your help,
Yes you can. However you need to install 3rd-party-modules separately
for each version - e.g. scipy - if you want to use them with both.
