The best bet is probably to just repartition your hard drive in your laptop,
and make a dedicated partition for the Vista install. The best and easiest
way I've found to repartition is to use GParted. http://gparted.sourceforge.net/
You can download a very tiny CD iso from them. It makes a bootable Linux
disc which automatically boots into X and run the GParted utility. Pretty
simple GUI. I did this with both of the machines I'm using to test Vista,
and it worked like a charm.
