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 ;-)
