    You should be able to use either OS provided you have a 64 bit machine. If you have more than 4GB RAM then you should use the 64 bit version

    To do the install, I would unplug the Windows drive, do the Linux install to your other hard drive, check Linux will boot, connect up the Windows drive again and either setup Grub as indicated below or try EasyBCD to setup dual boot.

    If you want to use Grub as the bootloader (which is what I would use) then follow the same process except when you reconnect the Windows drive set the boot order to boot from the Linux drive first and add an entry to Grub something like this ...
    title Windows Vista
    rootnoverify (hd1,0)
    map (hd0) (hd1)
    map (hd1) (hd0)
    chainloader +1
