Hello,

Here is a guide on how to dual boot xp and vista with Vista already installed, as you seem to have.
http://apcmag.com/ho...ystep_guide.htm
This is nice guide with screen shots.
Also, I'm not sure if you can buy a .iso of a OS, but what ever you say.
You will also need to burn your .iso to a cdr or on a flash drive and boot from it. You could go witha network install (PXE) but that maybe be to complicated for you, check google if interested.
Good luck.
