    ok, just ordered a new pc that is on its way pre loaded with WIN XP PRO SP2. It also come with a free VISTA BUSSINES upgrade. I want to set up a dual boot system when i get my VISTA disk. should i use partition magic and set up a new partition for vista or is there a better way of doing this?

    I would buy a second harddrive to install Vista on . . that way, when it comes time to dump XP, all you have to do is take the first drive out. Hard Drives are pretty reasonable these days
