I have a new computer loaded with windows 7 64 bit operating system. I will be installing Vegas 10.b 64 bit on this computer. I also have an older computer loaded with Windows XP Pro 32 bit and Sony Vegas 9.c.

My question is being I'll be switching between Vegas Pro-10 and Pro-9 for reasons we all know about do I need to have two computers to do this or can I use one computer and load two different versions of Vegas on one operating system?

If the answer is yes to one computer with two different versions of Vegas what is the best way to accomplish this?

Just install both versions on the computer. They will not interfere with each other.

I would install 9 first. While they don't interfere (much) with each other, they do share some libraries. Version 10 will have some newer (and presumably better) ones. If you install 9 after 10 then 9 will replace these shared libraries with older ones, and in some cases version 10 may not run with the older ones.
