Default How to run 2 OS on one pc?

I currently have to hard drives. One is a 200GB XP PRO,
the other is just an empty 40gb.

My buddy gave me his vista cd to try out.
I was wondering if their is a way to have vista on the 40 and stil have my xp pro on the other 200gb. Running on the same pc.

I do know that if i boot, ill have to choose vista or xp...but the other question i have is what to i set the jumper to?

1-slave
2-master with slave present
3- single or master or just on the last one, where it can be used as an additional hd.

I was also wondering if i would have any problems with any programs? if anything would conflict.
Since it will be a clean install, im wondering how it would work?
Im only doing this to find out if its time to upgrade to vista, or stick with xp.
Thanks

i got confused with virtual pc. SO i just went ahead and tried vista ultimate.
ITS AMAZIING. But it takes a while to boot up on my pc...maybe its because im running in on a 40 gb hard drive. a really old one(5years old)

But i was not dissappointed at all. i tried playing games and that sound problem i mentioned earlier was gone.
I love the new dream scene wallpapers...only on ultimate edition. and the thing that you can flip screens. I want to find out more cool features so ill keep checking.
