    thanx

    When installing the first OS, it will ask you what size of partitions do you want, then set them to abokut half(if that is what you want) and then install one by one. The second one you install should just either add on to the boot.ini file. If all is done correctly then you should be able to boot XP and 2003 without problems. Don't forget to make sure that the pagefile.sys is only in the drive that you want the OS or else that could cause problems. If you want to, just install all your programs after both are installed in the same directory... save space and run just as efficient.
