I am not sure why you have tagged this question port-forwarding and ssh-tunnel.
Can you explain what is your exact target?

The XP reference you give to enable TCP/IP forwarding,
If it works on Vista (have not checked that), will
allow you to use two network cards and setup Vista as a 'routing' device between them.
Is that what you are looking for?

If your question was related to setting up the Vista machine as a forwarding device,
you should remove the two tags I mention above.
I suspect that to be the case and have therefore lowered focus there.
