If you install your OSs on separate partitions, yes you must reboot to switch between them. The XP boot manager, NTLDR, will not recognize the newer OSs, however the Windows 7 bootmgr will include a menu entry for XP.
If you use Sun's VirtualBox, your XP is installed and used as if it were one of your programs.
