Dual boot - how to reinstall XP ?
Hi

I have a dual-boot pc - first I installed XP (partition 0) and then Vista
(partition 1).
Now I need to delete partition 0 and reinstall XP on it. I see that
partition 0 has some files needed to load Vista.
So if I delete partition 0, recreate it and install XP on it - how do I fix
Vista then?

TIA
