    Hi, just had a little worry, planning on having a 250GB HD for OS X, and another for Windows, am I right in thinking I can just partition the Windows hard drive and have both XP and Vista on it?

    yes, if you know what you are doing. You'd need a different boot manager than apples to choose which partition to boot from. When Installing which ever first partition off how ever much for the first install and leave free space for the other OS to install on to.

    I'd say rEFIt is a good candidate. Just google for it.
