If you want on one hard drive you install ME first on C: (recommended) than you install XP and choose D: and you're done you'll have 2 operation systems and you'll choose which to boot at the start than if you want 2 OSes on different HDD i had that already i'll link you http://www.tech-heaven.com/forum/sho...threadid=15071
