You can install both into your computer, even into the same drive / partition, but its not recommended, in that case it is required to install into a diffrent named folder than c:\windows

I personally have 2 working xps installed incase the other gets messed up I don't have to spend a few hours reinstalling right then and there il just start up the other one.

    most people only have one or the other installed, since this is a little more advanced than usual.

Put XP disk in CD-ROM and reboot the computer.

Click yes to install XP. It will tell you there is a system already installed on C drive. You select to install XP on C drive. It will ask if you want to format C drive, you select full format.

XP will then install

Install xp on vista home basic toshiba satellite L-40


Yes, Vista Home Basic is junk!

1.Vista is considered an upgrade, compared to Windows XP. Therefore, Vista is not just going to let you install over it.

2.You have to get your Windows XP drivers back.

This is a pretty intricate operation, but once you have detailed information, it becomes do-able.
Below is a link with detailed information, and concise clear illustrations. I felt it would be better to give you this link, to avoid any confusion, and/or misunderstanding of information from me.

Should get you on your way!

How to Install windows XP in SONY VAIO Vista


Is it ok if your files get lost forever?  If it is then what you have to do is when it says if you want to partition a hard drive space, you delete the biggest parition (which wipes any and all vista and files of the computer.)  Then it will ask you which partition you want use.  Use the one you just deleted, whhich is the biggest one.  It will ask you to format it and stuff, just go with it.  Then you will have XP instead of Vista!  (Warning: I warned you above that this way will wipe of vista and any other files-documents-photos-everything off your comptuer)
