As for a tri-boot, that'll depend on what you're installing next.

Changing the order of installation (such as installing XP last), will change what's required to make them all play nicely together.
Also, installing Linux before any of the Windows OS's will usually result in a SNAFU also. Linux recognizes Windows boot stuff - but Windows doesn't recognize the Linux stuff.
You can install OS's on any hard drive, you've just got to have different partitions for each one. So the Vista installation can't be on the XP partition - but they can be on the same hard drive. Generally there's a limit of 4 partitions on a hard drive (lot's of exceptions to this tho').
I prefer to keep the OS's on different hard drives, but it's not a requirement. If you put 2 Windows installations on the same partition, you're likely to mess them both up and probably won't be able to boot into either of them.
