You can set up a dual boot with both.

You normally want to install the oldest OS first and partition the drive to leave space for the newest OS to be installed. So basically you will have two partitions. One for XP and one for Windows 7.

If you have Windows 7 installed already then follow this guide. But be warned that if this is a new computer you will probably not find drivers for Windows XP.
