Most people install XP first then Vista , and you can actully install Vista from XP (no need to boot from cd/dvd to install) . Just make sure you direct Vista to the the correct partition or seperate drive . After both are installed the os boot up option will appear from then on .

Immediately upon booting, all the nightmarish memories from previous installs of trying to get hardware & necessary software to run came flooding back. (Strike 1)
Right away I noticed that the drive attached to the Marvell controller on the BadAxe2 didn't show up. Apparently there are no drivers out there for it. (Strike 2)
Then I discovered that Halo won't run under emulation software. (Strike 3)

And to be honest ....
Compared to the visual appearance of Vista .... it was very boring.
Yea there are add ons to make Linux visually better ... but then you gotta make the damn things work.
For me anyways ... it's just not worth all the effort.
