Not with Vista, but I have two computers dual booting with XP Pro and opensuse 10.3 just fine. You shouldn't have any problems.

We have done Suse 10.3 and Vista. Dont believe the info that you might find saying that grub can't boot Vista (we foound some), it works the same as XP.

I've built a Ubuntu / Vista dual boot using Grub boot manager before aswell. No problems dual booting with Vista and Linux distro of your choice.
