In short, yes. In my (Windows) version of 6.0.2 simply go to

Evaluation -> Kernel Configuration Options -> Add

and name your new kernel. Then if you want notebook1.nb to be
evaluated in this kernel go to

Evaluation -> Notebook's Kernel

and select your newly named kernel. Proceed with your evaluations in
the new kernel.

Of course, if you simultaneously want notebook2.nb to be evaluated in
the default kernel (mine is called Local), just choose that kernel for
notebook2.nb and proceed.

As you mentioned, this is especially nice if you have one really long
evaluation to do but still need to get other work done in Mathematica.

Hope that helps,
