Hello Sathishfiles,
you cannot do it on the same machine, or better, you cannot do it on the same install but you can do it in the same machine.
What you can do to get this done is creating a Virtual Machine (you can use <a href=”http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserversystem/virtualserver/”>Microsoft Virtual Server</a> or <a href=”http://www.vmware.com/products/server/”>VMWare Server</a> they are both free) and then have this virtual machine to be the child domain.
When creating the VM pay attention to memory, if your server has low RAM amount you’d better add some to it.
Bye
