    XP home and Vista on Different drives

    I have XP home and two harddrives, Can I install the Vista beta 2 onto my 2nd
    HDD without messing up XP home on the C:\ drive?

    Yes, you can boot into either Vista or XP on the boot screen. It gives you
    the option of Vista or Legacy Windows (XP).

    Yes, just launch setup from within XP, when the Custom optio becomes
    available, click it and select the partition dedicated for Vista.
