If you upgraded to Vista from WinXP:
How to go back to Windows XP after you have upgraded a Windows XP-based
computer to Windows Vista
How to restore a computer to a previous Windows installation after you
install Windows Vista
After backing up any data you wish to transfer to the new OS
installation, simply boot from the WinXP installation CD. You'll be
offered the opportunity to delete, create, and format partitions as part
of the installation process. (You may need to re-arrange the order of
boot devices in the PC's BIOS to boot from the CD.)
HOW TO Install Windows XP
Then the backed up data can be restored and applications (Those
that are WinXP-compatible, that is) re-installed.
