it's going to be a triple boot - 2 XP and 1 Vista.
Yeah thats exactly what I have on my main rig. Just make sure you keep XP as your system drive (usually drive C:\) you can check that out in Disk Management and that will save you a lot of head aches later
In the example below you can see that in the highlighted bit, and just below that is the drive I am working on now (the one labled Boot).
Try and avoid third party partition managers if you can but if you must use one then just create the partition with it but format it from XP.
