A good place to start is...
Search the Support Knowledge Base (KB)

for this issue, using "dual boot" and Vista as the 'product',
I found 12 items, this looks like a best candidate item (ymmv):
Installing previous versions of Windows on top of Windows Vista

You need to configure the Vista bootloader to see the XP partition.

http://neosmart.net/dl.php?id=1 is the easiest way in my opinion. You could do it manually but it'd be more of a pain. Good luck.

Add/Remove Entries
Tab to Add an Entry
Tab to Windows
Set Drop Down to Windows NT/2K/XP/2K3
Change the drive letter to your XP install partition.
Change the name to whatever you like, "Windows XP" is a good choice.
Click Add Entry button in the lower right hand corner.
Click Save button in the upper left.
Reboot.

Good luck.
