    Can someone lay to rest the deal with dual booting with vista/xp? I read and tried all the forums out there on steps how to dual boot xp with vista installed first and nothing has worked for me. I have a quad core gateway with 3gb of RAM with 500gb HD.

    You need a boot agent if you inmstall Vista first like Symantec "Boot magic" that is on the Partition Magic cd.

    Yes. I have gone through a very similar procedure quite a few times for friends. The only warning I would have, is, that it is important to have the DVD/CD's for both systems, otherwise it leads you into quite a few problems.
