    In order to dual boot, you need TWO different partitions, they can be from a single physical harddrive, windows 7 should have around 5 gb, excluding your own files.
    What is your harddrive status right now?
    Have you looked at Microsoft's upgrade paths? You should be eligible for a w7 upgrade.

    Oh and you missed a period or two, maybe more.
