You want to install XP to dual boot with Vista? Vista is already installed?

Do you want to put both on the same hard drive?

Do you have the XP CD?

Follow this tutorial as it is the same for Vista as wtih Windows 7: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/8057-dual-boot-installation-windows-7-xp.html

As a first step I suggest you make sure that you find ALL XP hardware drivers for your system - which is not obvious. The rest is easy, as you will see in the link that Greg posted.
