XP partition and Vista partition--URGENT!

    I've had a PC with 64-bit processor for over a year, but I've been running XP
    Professional on a partition on it. Now that Vista 64 bit SP1 is available,
    I've loaded that onto a second partition to test whether all my software will
    run on it. While running in Vista, I went to the XP partition (which shows
    up as drive D under Vista) and took ownership of the D:/.../My Documents
    folder. However, when I boot under XP, permission is denied to view any
    documents under the My Documents folder. Since I've not fully converted over
    to Vista, I still need access to My Documents when I boot under XP. How do I
    allow this?

    Login to XP as admin and take ownership?
    Make a login the same in both OS with same permissions?

    I'm also running dual boot with XP. To avoid having that problem I moved all
    of the documents/folders I needed to access from both OS's to a neutral
    location on a 3rd partition.
