On my new computer I would like to install vista on a seperate partition instead of local disk C. Is this possible?
Also, can I install multiple OS on one partition? Also, when I have to reinstall my OS, will it just erase the Data on the partition or will it erase the whole HD? And will it erase the other OS if I dual boot?
Finally, when I format a partition, will my whole drive be erased or just the certain partition?
Thanks for your help!

I dual boot XP and Vista. You cannot install Vista on anything except a primary partition. I have 5 hard drives, XP on one Vista on another. Whether I am in Vista or XP the partition that OS is installed on is the C drive even though it may be the F drive while booted to the other OS.
