Hi,

Sure, just boot the XP CD and install to a volume other than the one Vista
is on. Once completed, you will need to boot the Vista DVD and run a startup
repair to recover the Vista boot files, as XP's setup will rewrite the mbr
to point to ntldr.

Hi,

You can't start from within Vista, you have to boot the system to the XP CD
and start from there.
