you can create a live disk (a bootable version) and use this to resize your windows partition...read all of their documentation (very helpfull)...before you attempt to resize...make sure you defrag your computer, run the disk cleanup utility and do at least one pass wtih chckdsk /f

vista installs a snazzy boot loader that has to be removed (i'll try to find a link as i've never done this)...and to get the drive back to it's original size...with the one XP partition...you'd have to resize the partition again...in the oposite direction

if you're honestly just evaluating vista as a "should i or shouldn't i" then...i'd say go for the second hard drive option....that way you can have a vista HD and the one with XP...you can remove the XP one when you want to use vista and vice versa...
