    Absolutly... When you go tonsall Vista, just make sure that you target the partition that you want to use. Vista will install it's bootloader and you can choose which OS to use. (Defaults to Vista)

    NOTE: I hear it is rather diffucult to remove the bootloader but you should be able to restore XP's by running the Repair Console)
