The only way you can download Snipping tool in Vista to Xp is if you are using the XP Tablet PC. Snipping tool can also only be installed in some Windows 7 OS. But, luckily, there's an alternative tool that Snipping tool in Vista does, this is called "Snippy" it's features may have the same with the Vista's tool do.

To download this Snippy tool, click the link below;

http://download.cnet.com/Snippy/3000-13455_4-11014443.html

It is an 84Kb size file. Easy to run because it is executable. And once executed, it will automatically starts up. 

Click on the Scissor tool which can be found in the taskbar notification area. Simply set its options and start using.

Or the easiest way is to use Paint in your OS installed program.

Their is also another solution to your problem. Aside from spending time searching snipping tools over the internet and times on downloading the software which would possibly be hard for you to maneuver into. You can just use built-in tools in WinXp OS.

Here are the steps to do so using only the Print Screen Key and Paint application.

1) First you should show the image or application you want to snap.

2) Click on Print Screen Key on the keyboard

3) Open The Paint Application. Click Start ->All Programs -> Accessories -> Paint

 

4) Click Ctrl + V on the keyboard to paste the screen snap on the paint space

 

5) Click on the Square icon on the top left of the Paint Tool Box

6) Select the area on the image you want to snap by dragging the mouse over the image 

7) Click Ctrl + X on the keyboard to cut the selected area

8)  Click Ctrl + N to open a new Pain Application 

9) Select 'No' if prompted.

10) Click Ctrl + V to paste the selected part of the screen snap.

11) Save your work as a new image file.

12) You are DONE!

CONGRATULATIONS. this is a great alternative.
