I would also suggest installing the OS's on different harddrives. It's
easier to manage in the long run if you have to add disks at a later
date to either one of the operating systems. If you want to add more
disks as backups, I recommend doing them in FAT32. It's the most
compatible file system between Linux and Windows, so you'll be able to
backup to those drives from either OS with no problems.
