    First, you need to make recovery discs for Vista. Which you can do in Vista.



    Start, All Programs, Recover Manager, Advanced Options then Recovery Disc Creation. Follow the step by step directions from there.



    Then, you can go to Disk Management and create a partition for XP. And finally install XP.



    I found this, Hope it helps
