The EasyBCD 1.71 is a great tool for making things available right at the desktop rather then opening up the mscofig or manually using the BCD editor. You can also rename "previous versions of Windows" to something like Windows XP. When multibooting with the Home and Pro versions I found that out over simply making changes with the msconfig.
Adding XP in after Vista is on is a lot of crap however. When the new version came a few articles with so called methods were tried out to no avail. You still ended up reinstalling Vista to see XP installed into Vista's own boot options and new boot loader.
