    If you are asking if you can install another OS without uninstalling windows, the answer is generally yes. You have to first partition your HDD to allow space for your new operating system. I believe you can install pretty much any other OS into the new partition, but I'm not sure. A good free OS is Ubuntu, if you don't want to spend money on a new OS

    Partition Wizard and Easus Partiion Manager (as also noted by LookingAround) are excellent freeware partition software. Only difference is the later doesn't have Windows 7 x64 support as far as I remember.
