    You don't need to use bootcamp. Bootcamp is typically used for partitioning on yoru start up drive.

    You can use Disk Utility to partition your second drive (I think FAT), and you can format it using windows installer to NTFS.

    I already found the solution, at other threats I rode that you need other software and stuff.. you don't need them,

    If you install XP first with bootcamp and then just hold ALT/Option at the startup of your mac, choose the CD/DVD for Vista and install it on the other aprtition (which you have formated using DiskUtility >fat 32) and just install vista on that, and after that just hold ALT and choose Windows, when windows starts up IT let's you choose from XP and Vista ! :)

    no 3rth party crap needed ;)
