Yes, it is possible to have interoperability between XP/Vista roaming profiles, but it will require some additional folder redirection as Vista cannot read the XP profile.

Look in the section 'Scenario 3: Windows Vista and Windows XP Roaming User Profile Interoperability' it tells you what you need to do.
