Default partioned hard drive - 2 OS

OK. If I have a hard drive, partition it into two. Then I install XP on one partition, and install Vista on the other. After I know that all my software and hardware I want are working on my Vista; may I delete the XP partition?

Yes, you can do that, but make sure you keep all you installation files onto the Vista partition.

that's what I was thinking. After everything is ok with vista (that means atlease SP1). When you say all the instsall files on vista, what exactlly do you mean by that? I never really screwed around with partitioning before much. simple one for my MP'3, that's about it.
