Well first of all, get all the data you want to save off the Vista partition
Than while in Vista, Load VistaBootPro and go to the System Bootloader tab, Click:
Windows Legacy Bootloader
All Drives
Force Bootloader Install
Install Bootloader

That will move everything to the XP Drive so you can still boot to XP when Vista is gone
Than just boot to your XP x64 CD and format over the Vista Partition, then install
AFAICR x64 should automatically add the XP
