You must run them on different machines - no other way. But the good 
news is, that the machines may be virtual. You actually need only one 
physical PC, the one with win2k, and run two separate virtual machines 
in that.

<http://www.vmware.com/> have been doing virtualization for a long time
<http://www.parallels.com/> is what I use and can recommend - very fast
<http://www.virtualbox.org/> also available under GPL

I would strongly advice against that route. As it doesn't work 100% it 
basically defeats the whole purpose.
