Easy.
First make two partitions of your drive.
Then first install XP on one partition.
And then install Vista on the other partition.
Then you are finished

No can do. You have to first install the earliest operating system or else it won't recognise the dual boot.

So to have a dual boot, XP & Vista, you'll have to install XP, then install Vista.

That's just crazy. You can use VistaBootPRO to configure a dual boot if you had Vista installed before an XP install. I would recommend installing XP on a separate drive with the Vista drive disabled because the drive letter will change.
