Multi-boot install problems

--
FAQ section tells how to set up multiboot but doesn't tell you how to clear
a jam.

When I install Vista on another partititon, I get a message at end of install:

"Windows Cannot Upgrade Boot Configuration. Installation Cannot Proceed."

If I install Vista on the main partition overwriting XP, I can install
successfully. But then I lose Windows XP.

Please let me know how to work around this OS limitation.

Thanks!

Chris
