Yes of course. But only with a virtual pc - try 'VirtualPC' or 'VM Ware'.
I'm using VirtualPC (from connectix, :-) ) for a long time now, and it's working fine.
If you want to improve linux' long setup procedure on your real PC, I'd recommend only burning the first cd, make a minimal install, and use the RPMs from the harddisk (copy them there). Therefore you'll need only 1 cdr. At least this works fine for SuSE and Fedora distros.
