1. check its capable of running Vista i.e. upto minimum spec.

2. check there are Vista drivers available for all devices in your laptop before attempting to install vista

This is how to dual boot

You might want to try using a virtual machine click here to run XP and Vista, I don't use it myself but it might be a better alternative to dual booting, as far as I've read dual booting screws up the system restore as one OS tries to compete with the other.
