Can you have IIS and Apache on same physical server?

Hi all,

At work, we have a server running Microsoft IIS.
I want to deploy RoR apps - is it possible to have a virtual server on
the same machine running Linux,Apache ?
Is it possible to have two web servers on the same machine? - for
requests to go directly to Apache without having to go through the
proxy IIS server?

Yes, for example by using Virtual PC <http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtualpc/default.mspx>

Is it possible to have two web servers on the same machine? - for

proxy IIS server?

Yes. Just run it on a different port or different IP address.
