    Dumm question from Newbie, about Mutli-boot

    I have searched, but I guess in all the wrong places. I am right now
    downloading Vista, which will be installed on a secondary hard drive. I want
    to set up so that I can still boot to XP, if desired. Somebody show me what
    is staring me in the face, because I just cant see it.

    Thanks

    Vista supports this with a new boot loader. I've got XP, 2003, and Vista all
    loaded on one partition and it works fine.

    Oops, I meant to say I have it all loaded on one drive (separate partitions.)

    If you just the advanced option and pick the new partition Windows vista
    will load a bootloader for you ;-)
