I suppose I could do the same thing using a partition on one of my
existing hard disks.

I could set up a /test partition and install a "clean" distro there. 
Then when i get ready to update a package I can install it and test
it in my /test environment before overwriting my production system.

I'll have to do some research on this as I don't actually know how to
do it yet but it seems simple enough :-)
