    Sounds to me like you want to wipe Vista and replace with XP -- is that right?



    If so, that's easy: reformat your OS partition, boot from the XP CD, and do a normal installation.



    But if what you're asking is to "downgrade to XP", in other words, install XP but retain the settings you've established in Vista, there is no easy way to do that.
