Default Running Vista and Xp?

Hey guy's, Fast question. I'm running Vista Ultimate 64 Bit. An I'm wanting to also have XP Pro (32Bit)...

I go to install XP, And I only have the C Partition. But Vista is on there? If I install XP on that partition, Wont it mess stuff up?
It say's push C to create a partition but nothing happen's?

Thank's for the advice!

...Just to add. When I do click install to C, It want's to reformat the drive and I need / want to keep Vista installed.
Just it wont create a new partition?

Yeah I know... On the XP install disk it said hit C to create a new partition but nothing happened.

I'm wanting to just dual boot I guess it's called. But All the info I've read is already having XP installed and installing Vista... I need to go the other way around.lol
