If you're wanting to allow for multi-boot on your system between say XP and Vista, it might pay to have a read of this fresh article over at the Inquirer first, as it appears Vista doesnt play ball too well with other OS's unless you go about it in a specific way.

WHEN facing a tough task of having to review systems and check benchmarks through various OS environments on a single system, I often had to install multiple operating systems per machine in a quick sequence. Prior to the arrival of Vista, it was usually a combo of WinXP Professional 32-bit and 64-bit, so that both 32-bit and 64-bit benchmark codes can be ran in an "apples-to-apples" comparison.
