Just ignore the first part about shrinking the Vista volume if you already have a separate drive already partitioned for XP.
XP doesn't have to be on the same physical disk as Vista, it's just that many tutorials assume most people will be doing that.
The 'dual-boot' principal works just the same if Vista and XP are on two different disks.

If it came with Vista, and you plan on leaving it then here is what you would do. Since Vista came pre installed, i am assuming it is your C:/ drive. With that said, when you put in the XP disk to install it, your C:/ should be the size of your 1st drive with Vista on it (ie- if you have a 100GB Hard Drive, then your C:/ partition should be slightly less than 100,000MB). That would mean that the next Partition (ie - D:/, E:/, F:/, or an UNPARTITIONED space) that is equivalent to the size of your second hard drive is where you want to install XP. From here you should be able to follow pip22's link to the tutorial to complete this. - Buji
