    Yes, you have to install the lowest version of windows first to make it dual boot. i learned the hard way a long time ago and tried to dual boot 98SE with XP (had alot of software that wouldnt run under XP at the time). First install XP on master then Vista on slave and should work great :)

    Follow the how-to if you have Vista already installed.
    It's not that hard.
