Because Vista and XP use different methods to access boot instructions and the fact that Vista will replace XP's boot.ini file with it's own boot loader (BCD or Boot Configuration Data store), the best way to accomplish a dual boot with these operating systems is to install Vista to the first drive and XP to the second. You will then have to use Vista's BCD and add the XP operating system to it. This can be done very easily using a BCD editor like Vista Boot Pro.
Once the Vista BCD has been edited to add XP, you will be prompted each time you start the machine to choose which operating system you want to start.
