Add a second partition to your hdd with a utility like Partition Magic or True Image, install the second OS, and remove it by repartitioning it later.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I would use something like http://www.virtualbox.org/ its all virtual so you can just delete the virtual disk when you no longer need it.

You can repair the Vista boot by downloading BCS Edit. I think that's what it is called but a Google will put you right.
