You'll need a third party tool such as Partition Magic or Acronis' Disk Director to do this (= $). There are free disk re-partitioning tools out there - but I haven't found one that's either reliable or easy to use. (I dunno if Vista can do this during the installation process - but don't believe so)
Once the partition is resized and the new partition is created - then just select the Custom installation during the Vista install routine and it'll let you pick the partition to install it on.
FYI - I did this with my latest build of Vista, and then started monkeying with my storage stuff (pointing my profiles and My Documents to another drive). At some point this hosed some of my stuff on XP. It was easily fixed, but a real PITA to have to do!

My eye problems have recently increased and I'm having difficult reading posts. (23 Nov 2017)
FYI - I am completely blind in the right eye and ~30% blind in the left eye.
If the eye problems get worse suddenly, I may not be able to respond.
If that's the case and help is needed, please PM a staff member for assistance.
