I mean, I have a Vlite CD, but it is a crack, so I don't think it will help.

Give this a shot. It is from the reference guide and tells how to dual-boot Vista and XP with Vista installed first. I know You have done some of it, but read through what they do, and see if they did anything you didn't as part of the process.

I read that through. I did everything they said, but my problem starts at inserting the Vista disk. I do not have mine, it was pre-installed on my computer.

I'm looking around for you. I want to see if there is a Boot CD that can install the GRUB loader you need. I know some versions of Linux come with it, but I don't know if you need install the actual OS or not for the GRUB to load.
