Currently, I am dual booting XP-64, and Hardy 64. I want to upgrade the XP installation to Vista. I assume that Vista will overwrite the MBR and I will be unable to boot into Linux. How do I either ensure that does not happen, or fix it if it does?

My HDD setup is such-
74 gb Raptor w/ Xp
250 gb hdd, split into three partitions -
-100 gb Ubuntu ReiserFS installation
-about 5 gb for swap
-Rest is NTFS storage space

Thanks!

You can reinstall grub once the win upgrade has finished
