Do you mean???

Is it possible to install xp sp2 on a windows vista machine to create a dual boot configuration?

Yes there are lots of articles covering this topic.
This is about the best directions on performing the dual boot set up!

You cannot have Win XP and Win Vista installed on the same partition.

To run two operating systems you need either two partitions on the one hard drive, or two hard drives,

Win XP has to be installed on the boot drive first, before Win Vista is installed on the second partition / hard drive...

You have to use the xp cd to reformat the c partition that vista is installed on by creating two partitions. Install the xp on the first partition and vista on the second.
