The dual boot option should be fine. Just remember that the Home Premium
edition installed on your new PC will 'probably' be setup to use the whole
of your hard drive for its own use. Obviously you will need to create a new
partition for Vista Business by shrinking your current Premium partition to
a more managable size (40 - 60GB). By shrinking the partition you will be
left with unallocated space which you can use to create a seperate partition
for Vista Business.
