If this is so, if a group contains computers running Windows 7, Vista, and XP, won't the installation fail for some of the computers because they have an operating system that is incompatible with the update software?

In Windows Intune the Update approvals can only be performed on a Computer group. If the Update is not applicable for a computer it will not install on it as the applicability rules will not be met.
http://onlinehelp.microsoft.com/en-us/windowsintune/ff628148.aspx is the help topic that explains the update approval process.

Computers evaluate applicability rules for each update (this occurs independent of administrative approval, by the way, and is reported to the service and exposed through the administrative console). These rules include such parameters as they OS for which the update is applicable.
If the applicability rule "fails" (namely the computer determines that the update is not applicable for its OS) then no attempt will be made to install the update.
I hope this helps.

Here is a great article from the Windows Intune online help:
Basically, updates will only apply to the OS they are designed for. So you can have XP, Vista and Windows 7 all in the same computer group without any worry.
I hope that answers your question.
