If the VAIO has a "designed for Microsoft Vista" sticker, then it's very-likely that you won't be satisfied by running Windows XP --- you'll be missing the device-drivers for your specific hardware (network adapter, sound-card, video-card).
do you have both original OS?
if your laptop had XP on factory defaults you migth whanna look for recovery disks. if a friend full formated your harddrive when installing vista, then get a copy of windows XP and put the key of your laptop.
If you want to change Windows XP to Vista you should check out the different Vista versions that Microsoft offers, here is a link to the different versions of VIsta that you can get and the upgrade paths you need to take - http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windows-vista/get/upgrade-your-pc.aspx. You wont need the Windows XP installation disk to upgrade to Vista. Let me know if you need any more assistance.
There is no easy answer for this type of question, unfortunately. The best I can do is offer some advice. While installing XP is always possible, and most of the time preferred by the user, not all of the hardware will work every time with every computer. That's just a disclaimer.
