Multiple Images

I currently have a Linode but it's being administered by someone else. Before we were running two domains on the one Linode. Can I take my one linode, and have two virtual machines on it? I want to have one for production data and one for test data that I can refresh without affecting the production image. Right now I'm on a Linode 4096 plan with a LAMP Stack Disk image of 48896 and a 256MB Swap Image.

I'm wondering that if I do this, I assume I'll need another IP address for the 2nd image that is running?

While you can store multiple disk images on a Linode, only one configuration may be booted at a time. In order to say have a production and test environment running concurrently, you would need two different Linodes.
