Hello Giantpune, and welcome to Vista forums.
You should be able to boot from the Vista installation dvd, select a
hard drive to install it to, and finish installing it without having to
install anything else until you are at the desktop in Vista. There you
will of course install all of your drivers, Windows Updates, and
activate Vista. It's pretty straight forward, but here is a tutorial to
help guide you along a clean install of Vista if needed.
Hope this helps,
