Here is a link that I used it helped me much more than others I found. http://apcmag.com/5485/dualbooting_vista_and_xp
As for you not having a Vista DVD. I think you will have problems because if you are instaling Dual boot ,after instaling xp it changes the boot file, Vista uses a new type. So then you put in your Vista DVD and repair boot ,then boot to Vista and run a program called easyBCD http://neosmart.net/dl.php?id=1 and add the WinXP Drive, this adds that to the vista boot file.

I hope you have some luck,try your computer manufacturer for the DVD afterall because of microsoft rights ,the DVD should belong to you.
