    He is right MS considers XP a "downgrade" from Vista but you can do a dual boot with XP and Vista, you need to partition your hard drive 2 gigs is a great amount to have and you can decide how you want to divide it (I would give Vista 1 gb if not more for optimal running). Sounds like you have a nice set up so you should have no problem dual booting. This link is a step by step on how to dual boot with Vista already installed.

    Hope this helps :)
