2 installs?

Can I install winamp pro twice on the same pc? I have two very distinct libraries of music and I don't want to combine them. For example, I would like to all all of my jazz in one install and all my rock in another one. I am sure there must be a way to do this. Any help would be appreciated.

Yes, another option is to create two separate Smart Views in the Media Library, one to show the jazz and one to show the rock.

You can use queries similar to:
Jazz smart view: filename begins "X:\music\jazz"
Rock smart view: filename begins "X:\music\rock"

I'm sorry, you lost me. Can you give me a little explanation as to how this would be done?

Open the library.
Right click on Local Media.
Select Add Smart View.
Switch to the advanded mode editor or fumble about in the simple one.
Set the query to what I pasted but using the correct path to your music collections.
Set the pane layout and filters.
Give it a name.

Or if you mean "How do I install Winamp twice?", run the installer twice and give a different folder in which to install Winamp. E.g:
C:\Program Files\Winamp (jazz)
C:\Program Files\Winamp (rock)
