Dual Boot Video Conflict
Currently my Vista dual boot install uses the WXP ATI Radeon 1950 driver.
However, some programs require an updated "OpenGL" driver to run properly
under Vista.

Can I install the latest ATI Radeon 1950 Vista driver on the Vista part of
my dual boot without it interfering with the WXP video driver withn WXP?

Interesting - What programs? "OpenGL" generally refers to freeware and/or
shareware not restricted by licensing ("Open ) - such as Linux and
associated programs.

Installing a Vista driver to Vista's partition or HD would not involve the
driver within the XP partition or HD.
