it is okay as long as you are careful how you install it. make sure you install it beside vista and not over it.

You can install it within windows and not be virtual. Just makes it easier to uninstall or you can install it by itself.

see the following for step by step instructions


one thing, be sure to back up anything you cannot afford to lose in windows just in case.
