How are they gonna know if you partition the drive, put linux on the 
other half and put in lilo or grub with Vista as the default partition?

There is still a computer floating around at a place where I worked some 
7 years ago with linux on half of the hard drive.  I think they wonder 
why the size of the drive seems to be half of what it is supposed to be.

The issue of talking to their network through the linux half may be an 
issue, but I suppose you can do all of the network stuff from the Vista
