I see John Inzer has answered your question IF you have done an upgrade
and IF you have the Windows.old folder and IF you have sufficient space
on your HD to do the restore.
If you don't meet the abouve requirements then you'll have to backup
all your stuff you want to save to a CD or flash drive or separate
partition and then boot on your XP disk, delete the Vista partition and
do a clean install. This will mean having to re-install all your
applications, etc and may involve a substantial amount of time and work
so...... May I make a suggestion?
Lots of people are running Vista successfully maybe you could also?
There's bunches of help here, why not give it some more time to see if
you can resolve any issues you have with it? If you do decide to go
back to XP you can do so at any time so why not give Vista some time.
