Default XP OS can't see primary partitioned drive on Vista OS


I'm trying to follow the dual boot procedure, but cannot seem to get past XP refusing to see any drives on my Vista OS computer. I searched the site and found information about slipstreaming, but am unfamiliar with this and what it does. Question 1. Is this procedure essential to installing a dual boot XP OS on a Vista machine? 2. If so, can the download and installation procedure for the slipstreaming operation be done while using the Vista OS? 3. Are there any proprietary software programs available today that make the Vista and XP dual boot procedure (with Vista installed first) easier for the less informed user? Thank you for your replies. cpo1
