Dual Booting Without Boot Camp?

Is it possible to dual boot a XP with OS X 10.5.8 without using Boot Camp? When I boot to the XP Disk at start up, my computer is able to start the XP setup, but I don't want to mess anything up. Is that the right thing to do? When/How/Where do i partition? help?

All the info you need should be here.
Apple - Support - Boot Camp
While in OSX go to: App.>Utilities> Boot Camp Assistant
Others ways to have multiple OS on your mac would be; Parallels or VMware Fusion. But BootCamp is free (besides cost of the OS)

Dual booting will require the latter of the above, and Parallels latest version gives you that option, with bootcamp, which it didn't in the past.
