Adding XP PRO to Vista

#1
I have a new computer with Vista installed and running. I have partitioned my hard drive into C and D partitions. Vista resides on C. I want to install XP PRO in a dual boot configuration. I downloaded the EasyBCD instructions, but they did not include the addition of XP. What procedure do I follow to add XP PRO?

The Add/Remove Entries Windows Tab. Under type click on the down arrow to show the options and choose the NT/2k/XP/2k3 option. Choose the correct drive. (Should be D:\) and then click add entry.

That should allow for dual boot.

That's correct - but I don't think he has XP even installed yet?

If you haven't yet installed XP, boot from the XP CD, install it to partition D:\, and once setup is finished install .NET 2.0 and EasyBCD in Windows XP. EasyBCD | Bootloader Management | Reinstall Vista Bootloader. Then the step Mak mentioned to get XP added to the Vista bootloader.
