    It possible because you would need the appropriate key to activate each version. Each version is simply a lessor version of the complete install, so it's really only a matter of disabling features from the lessor installs.

    It would do you little good to install a version that your Licensing Key will not activate. They issue you a Licensing Key that is version specific and package all versions within one disk. Please note that the keys are not bit specific, the same key will activate both 32-bit or 64-bit installs.

    So the choice you have is installing the version that matches the Licensing Key you purchased.

    all the editions are there
    in the installation process you skip the product key and it will take you to all the vista editions there but you need to have a product key for that edition

    The only one you really need is Ultimate as it contains everything I believe, but be sure to get a GENUINE product key or you will be surrounded by armed b*stards.
