You can install either first. You can do it no problem.

Read thru these guides and that first to get some knowledge of what you are working with.

Vista XP Dual Boot - Understand the basics - The NeoSmart Forums
The definitive dual-booting guide: Linux, Vista and XP step-by-step

If you have any more questions on how to get it working stop by the first links forum to get any answers you need. Or stop by the Windows forum and ask there.
