Grav!ty, you rock!!!!
Seeing my XP partition as a boot option on startup and then watching it bootup was perhaps the most exciting moment I've had since receiving my HP dv9000t w/ Vista. Your instructions for adding the req'd files to the XP folder did it!!!
No more of the hairloss, premature aging or impotency that Vista has caused me through incompatibilities, networking issues or seeing Vista compatible software pricetags.
I can now sit back, relax, and wait for Microsoft to deal with Vista's bug infestation.
Thanks also to VistabootPRO!!! What a sweet utility.
