Make sure that he has his XP disc/key ready, any data from Vista that he wants backed up, the drivers for his SATA HD on a Disc (This may not be necessary)
First step...do the above
Second Step...boot the XP disc and if it recognizes his HD than you are almost golden
Third Step...Install XP
Even though we are a Windows 7 help forum...don't be a stranger and come back to ask questions even if you run XP
