Possible to run MSDE (2000) and 2005 Express at the same time

Just wondering if this is possible, I'm coding this application that will run on a network with a SQL Server 2000, however each workstation (notebook computers in this case) will need to copy some of that data locally to a SQL 2005 Express instance. On the computer I'm developing on I'd like to have an instance of both MSDE and SQL 2005 Express running so I can replicate the network as close to possible while writing code.

Alternatively I could just install MSDE (2000) on to the workstations, however 2k5 Express can be embedded into setup files with visual studio so that is really appealing to me.

Any help or links would be appreciated.
