    I already have Vista and Ubuntu running on my system, with GRUB bootloader. Now I need to add XP. What would be the best way to do this?

    Get retail version of 7 when it comes out and use its XP mode and dual boot with Ubuntu.

    the only reason you'd want both xp and vista on the same box is if you need one for testing, in which case you should just run it in a virtual machine.
