Installing Windows 7 after Windows XP [duplicate]

Can anyone direct me to a link or describe the procedure of what has to be done to install Windows 7 after Windows XP. Windows XP and all its data must be preserved, so I'd like not to experiment; I don't have a backup, and currently can't do one.

"Install Windows 7 on a different partition than Windows XP and you're basically done. The Windows 7 boot manager will recognize both operating systems and will take care of the rest. You won't lose any files, Windows XP will still work.

Here's a tutorial on how to install Windows 7. Just make sure not to format the XP partition and you'll be alright."
