I'll install XPx86 & 2K3x64...

The two OS are in 2 disks.
When each OS was installing, the other disk was offline.
I boot from different disk by modify CMOS's config.
Now I'm trying to select the OS by the booting menu.
First, I modified the boot.ini, add a commandline and set rdisk=1, but I failed.
Now, I'm trying to do it by EasyBCD.
Good luck to me...I'd tried it since 2 days before.

Try EasyBCD 2.0 latest build. (you will need .NET 2.0 framework on the system where you want to use it.)
Because you don't have a longhorn system, it won't find a BCD to open.
When it tells you it can't run for that reason, try pointing it at the Neosmart.BCD in the profile folder where you installed EasyBCD.
When it starts, use tools/auto-configure boot.ini.
If that doesn't work for you, manually edit boot.ini on the controlling system to add a second line to the [Operating System] section so that you've got something like this
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Windows XP on this drive" /fastdetect
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Windows XP on the other drive" /fastdetect
