This has become so easy over the years to the point you would not believe.

1. Right click on Computer and click on Manage.
2. Click on Disk Management
3. Right click on the drive you wan to split and hit shrink.
4. With the extra space format the space into a drive.
5. Place the windows XP cd in the drive and install XP (or your desired OS) to that drive.
5.5 If installing Ubtntu, just make one extra drive and let it split the drives up for you.

There is one last step. There is a possibility that after installing xp or linux that your Vista will not be in the boot manager.

6. Pop in the windows vista cd, boot the pc off the cd, After the cd boots up click on the fix button. The fix utility will take care of the system files that enable you to choose which os to load when the pc is turned on.

6.5 You may also want to install a boot manger. No need to pay for one, all of the free ones work if they are on

Windows xp and dualcore usage

If you mean dual core cpu, I built my system over a year ago and it runs just fine, and better than any system that I ever had. BTW I am running an Intel dual core, but an AMD doesn't make a difference.
