Dual boot--XP (32bit) & Win7(64bit)?

I'm not looking for detailed instructions. I'm just wanting to know if it's possible to dual boot these two systems.

I use VPN-1 SecureClient to connect to my workplace and I hear that it doesn't play well with 64bit Windows 7. So I'm wanting to do all my non-work applications with Windows 7. And then when I need to do work, I'll just reboot under XP.

I didn't think about it, just did it. To top it off, I also run virtual XP within Win 7 Pro.

Dual boot XP and 7
 
 
I need help please

On buying an HP Pavillion with Windows 7 preinstalled I wanted to double boot it with XP on a second HD, i did as recomended in the forum I installed XP on a second HD which had previously had been partitioned with all my XP partitions in my previous computor and selected an approprite partition to install the XP into. After installation I installed all XP drivers for my unit and used Dual boot pro to reistablish booting in Windows 7 all worked well but after a while booting into XP blocked and I ws forced to reinstall XP, but this time the dual boot screen on startup refused to start 7 and continuouisly restarted and on trying the XP button I got the following message

"Windows could not start, a recent modification of the softwre could bev the cause of this. To fix the problem:-
1 - Insert installation disk of Windows & restartthe unit.
2 - Chose the language parameters and click "next"
3 - Click on "Repair your computor".

File : \ntldr
Status : 0x000000f
Infos : Impossible to charge start option chosen as the application is absent or damaged.

I did as recomended and once again used Dualboot Pro and the the same thing happened another three times so now I am on XP and have not attempted to use Doubleboot Pro, and decided to ask for help.

Please note that when in window 7 my partion table is A:\System, C:\HP(windows 7), D:\WinXP
In XP the table is c:\System, K:\WinXP, U:\HP(windows 7

Please also answer me to my Email address
Kindest Regards
