Yes - I did just that last night. If you Google dual boot vista xp, you'll find lots of sites with plenty of advice.

I have dual booted with Vista on my second internal drive---with one drive you have to create another partition. I found that I had to disconnect my printer/scanner to get Vista to install. I will now have to download Vista drivers from the Epson website.

Also, because I bought my PC between Oct 2006 and Mar 2007, I eventually received an Vista upgrade disk. Again Google found several sites that gave a method of using the upgrade disk to do a clean install without losing XP. As I understand it, you cannot just unravel Vista and easily get back to XP if you have upgraded XP.
