I've never seen Vista Ultimate(retail box) for less than 260$. I'm going to install it on a seperate hard drive, I don't even want to take the chance of trying the dual-boot setup.
Multiboot is very easy. Just divide hard drive to i.e 4 different parts and you can install 4 OS:s there. Heres dummy guide on how to dualboot with with vista/xp - I used it myself:
