Default Vista wont let me boot XP.

I installed vista and now all it wants to do is boot Vista. If I load up my SP2 CD it'll see XP but if I try to fix the MBR vista just comes back, no option for booting XP. What do I do? I can't format the Vista drive through Ubuntu (I know it's NTFS but it was worth a go. So I'm a tad stuck.

What now?

Google for EasyBCD from Neosmart Technologies. It will allow for you to dual boot again.
