    I was wondering if (how) to run vista and xp on the same computer. Not at once. I want it to give me the choice of wich I want to run on startup. Like it does when you have two versions of xp.

    It's called dual booting.
    Google it.

    Sure does..it works for almost any operating system.

    The secret for Windows OSes...is that you have the oldest operating system installed first...then install the second. Best done to a different partition or hard drive. You risk serious issues if you install two diff versions of Windows to the same partition.

    You can also dual boot Windows with Linux.

    On the new Intel based Macs...you can dual boot Windows with Mac OSX and even triple boot with Linux.
