'Collusion' and 'solution' are very different words. In any case, you need to give more information (complete error messages, logs seen in Administrative Tools, results of trying alternate boot (hold F8 while booting) and checking logs using safe boot, etc.) if you want to do something in particular; otherwise, I'll tell you to get a Linux LiveCD like 'WattOS R4' and boot that. Windows XP is becoming deprecated and you will want a modern OS. Decide what you want to run (e.g. Steam, MacOS X, AutoDesk tools...) and consider VMs, and consider among the OS discussed at OSNews.com and MaximumPC.com
It seems as if you have some of your boot priorities out of skew, specifically having booting through your network connection as a higher priority. In order to fix this, you need to go into your bios settings and rearrange the boot settings so that booting from LAN is either disabled or not the top priority and making booting from CD or HDD the top priority.
Don't try to edit the xp boot.ini or the vista bootloader. It only leads to other problems and headaches.
Try this first: Take note as to which drive has vista on it, put your vista installation cd in the drive and let it boot to the "installation window", then choose "repair", then "startup repair." Make sure you choose the drive that already has vista on it. Let that run and when it re-boots you should then be given a choice to boot to vista or "other windows".
There is also a (free) program called EasyBCD. Download that, read the directions and have at it.
If none of that works, you'll have to do a clean install. Install XP on one drive first, then Vista on the second drive in that order. The Vista bootloader will pick up the XP. However, XP is NOT forward compatible and will not recognize the Vista bootloader. Make sure that you don't have any flashdrives or media cards plugged in before doing the install.
Another approach would be to shrink the Vista volume, creat a new partition, then install Linux Ubuntu that partition. Linux will detect all of the OS's and create a boot menu. Unfortunately, you'll lose about 5 gigs to the Linux OS and it's swap partition, but then, you get to goof around with Linux :-)
I beleive that you are installed windows first and linux second,then dual booting will be configured automatically ,means linux will install the grub (boot loader)and configure it with what all Os u have.If your system is not booting and showing grub menu do one thing ,boot it from a linux cd and reinstall grub.
