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.

Have a look at this : http://download.microsoft.com/download/3/b/a/3ba6d659-6e39-4cd7-b3a2-9c96482f5353/Managing%20Roaming%20User%20Data%20Deployment%20Guide.doc

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