Yes you can but you will lose 2-3 Gig of RAM available.

If you install Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate you can rin XP mode and install the porgrams in XP Mode so you will not lose any RAM.

XP Mode is used to run programs that will not run on Windows 7 (x64 or x86). You can even install scaners, Printers, and other devices that will not work on Windows 7.

It would be a shame to waste about 2.5GB of your installed ram, 1haplo's suggestion would be a better option. The Pro version would suffice, using the anytime upgrade option.
