Absolutely. You can tell Windows where you want to install it. It doesn't matter if you have two partitions or twenty. When doing the installation, you can manually partition however you want. If you happen to be using restore disks, it is going to preserve the restore partition automatically.
Can I preserve the restore partition
That is really unusual. I have used GParted dozens of times to do repartitioning and never had that happen. In fact, when people ask about free repartitioning software, I nearly always recommend GParted. Is there any chance you muffed the partitioning process somehow? Even if you did, you can use any Windows disk to rebuild the master boot record.
I used Gparted from a live dvd to make a 20gb partition at the end of the first partition. A very bad idea, I see, because Vista will not boot.
