You'll need to partition your hard drive. It's easiest using a program called Partition Magic 8. Windows has a kind of built in dual-boot program, so if you install it on a separate partition, they should both be in the Master Boot Record, and you should be able to choose which you want to load.

Did any one hear that two weeks ago Microsoft made a big goof and had the full version(not beta) on there download site for two hours! A spokes person for microsoft was on the news and said "that an estamated 400 people could have download it" they since have fixed the mess up. Damn shame I didnt get a copy,but Im sure they are out there for download now.

I tried the Vista Beta (legally) but I didn't want to activate it so I just nuked it and went back to XP. It looks nice, though.
