if I were going to do it, I'd set 3 partitions, install linux, windows xp, then vista
Linux will install lilo (or another linux bootloader), windows xp will install the xp bootloader, then vista will install the vista bootloader
When the machine boots, you will get the vista bootloader with the choice to load VISTA or earlier operating systems, then the xp loader will give you a choice between linux and xp--so , you will have to go through 2 bootloaders
I am not aware of a third party bootloader that works with Vista, so that would be easiest...i'm sure there is one though if you really feel compelled to go the third party route

By loading in linux, then xp, you use the xp loader for both linux and xp, and then vista, you get what I described above.
You could also try another idea...vmware offers a version of its virtual server software for free, and MS just released VirtualPC for free.
You could install ubuntu in a virtual machine within xp
