Disk image restore with dual boot question

Hey

I currently have 2 x 250GB hard drives; the first with XP and Vista on separate partitions, and the second for data/media.

My question is: Is it safe to restore an OS disk image without removing the partitions i.e. restoring an XP disk image back to its original partition whilst keeping the Vista partition intact.

Basically I'm trying to find a safe/efficient way of backing up my OS's by saving disk images to an external hard drive, so if something goes wrong, ie doesn't boot, I can restore an image via the other OS. I'm new to this so any help would be great!

PS I'm using Acronis True Image Home 11

Cheers!
