You can either run XP in a virtual machine on your Vista system - or you can partition your hard drive in order to install XP on the other partition.
Depending on what and how you partition the drive, you won't necessarily lose data - but this is largely determined by your use of the partition and what partitioning tools you're using.
Yes, it is possible to install XP on an external drive - but it's a pretty complicated process. I started reading up on it and decided not to do it because it was so complicated.
