Windows "One of the more questionable tactics that Microsoft has implemented in Vista is to automatically overwrite any existing MBR during the installation process without asking if you mind or giving you an option to back up. Microsoft says that the Windows installation system can't intelligently interrogate an existing non-MS MBR, although such features are quite common in the install routine for other OSes."

XP trashes your MBR also. You have to install the second OS AFTER you install XP. Vista continues on Microsoft's tradition.
