I made a 5GB partition with Bootcamp and installed Windows XP SP2. Played a few of my windows games and some suprised me and played quite well. Doom III was not bad at 800x600 but at 1024x768 it was a bit jerky. I was not suprised. I am amazed that the Intel 950 with Shared memory did as well as it did. Some games were quite playable. Just the real demanding ones at higher resolutions were jerky. I could still play Doom III at 1024 but I would rather play it on a real Game system with a FAST Dedicated graphics card. The Mini is an amazing little machine for what it is and is very fast except on the most demanding games. Windows XP runs like butter on it. FAST as on my AMD 64 system for anything but demanding games. I did some benchmarking on it and was suprised to see it beat an AMD 64 3200+ in a lot of very demanding benchmarks.

OSX on the Core Duo mini is VERY smooth and nice.

5GB is all I intend to give Windows XP. I have AMD 64 Systems to run Windows on. The only reasons I even put XP on it at all was to see how it worked and to help others here at Mac Forums who need to install XP for certain applications.
