It is certainly possible, you installed with "make altinstall" instead 
of the usual "make install".  This will keep the program "python" as
Python 1.5.x and create a new program called "python2.0".

If you read a few paragraphs down from the top of the Makefile, it is
explained for you.  It is good to read this first before you proceed.
