I mean, don't use the Windows-bootmanager, only an other one. My
bootmanager works with Vista, see my sig. Only the text is in Dutch.
In short: Make a second primair partition, install HWBOOT (only
start it) and youre ready. Activate the bootmanager with an reboot
using the spacebar in begin of the boot. Choose your partition.
If you choose the 2th, the pc stops. Start a floppy with HWBOOT.COM
and remove the bootmanager starting HWBOOT.COM. Now you (he) can
start with a XP-CD and install. After the install, install HWBOOT
