When I created a dual boot of linux and windows, all i did was turn on the system and it asked me which OS I wanted to boot.

I'm not sure if this'll work. But, good to try.

Set your Vista as master and Xp as slave and then load up Vista and use Vista Boot Manager to find the Win Xp boot.INI and the rest is well easy with that. You just add a new boot selection and name it xp.
