Default Recommendation for dual booting xp and vista

Hi, i have one computer and does anyone recommend installing windwos vista to dual boot with windows xp. last time i tried it i had massive system error and couldnt even boot, the vista install may have been buggy. but does anyone recommend this and can someone give step byt step instructions on how to reduce risk and ensure i will not have the same probelm.

Well since you are installing a Beta OS there are no guarentee's that can be made for this.

I have done it many times but i also have had my fair share of problems.

Unless you are completely cofident in your skillz as a PC users and know how to fix boot errors and partition problems then i would suggest against it.
