As a side note, I had the 64 bit RC version, but have decided to go with the 32 bit version on the new install. So far it rocks but it'll take me at least all weekend to get everything installed back again.
Like Barman58 said, you might want to re-think the 32bit, if you have 8GB RAM, you'll be much better off with 64bit Windows 7. Windows 7 32but will allow a max RAM of less than 4GB.
Windows 7 does take the drive letter C, when you boot into Vista it will have the drive letter C, Not sure with XP as I haven't dual booted it with Windows 7.
This allows all your programs to run with the C drive, everyone (programs) is happy.
Since you have deleted Vista, problem solved.
You can use Windows Easy Transfer - Transfer To & From Computers
to get your user settings, you will still have to install the programs. You can download WET for XP if you need to. Windows Easy Transfer for transferring from Windows XP (64 bit) to Windows 7
You might be surprised how many people are deleting XP in a week from installing Windows 7, if you need it for a program then you can run Windows XP Mode
Keep it as long as you like, of coarse.
