Microsoft has long restricted Windows so that it cannot be booted from an external drive, which is why you are getting the error. You will need to replace your internal drive on the MBP to boot Windows. This is not a Mac, Boot Camp or OSX issue - this has been the case for Windows since the mid-1990s... Sorry to bring you the bad news.

And while you're at it, you should consider upgrading to Snow Leopard for $29, and once you get Windows installed, upgrading to the latest BootCamp version (3.2) I believe from within Windows.

Good luck!
