You'll need to partition the disk so that you can have space for both OS's. Then you'll need a bootloader, such as LILO (Linux Loader) or some other bootloader that lets you select the OS. Install whatever Windows OS you need into one partition while the other partition is disabled. Windows will take over every partition on the computer if it can. Then enable the other partition and load whatever OS you want. After that, install the bootloader. Recognize that if you're using Linux of almost any flavor LILO is already there. Good luck.

Insert the DVD. If a menu pops up with options, you can use it to restart and install Vista. If not, restart your computer. It will need to check to boot from DVD before hard drive.
