Can anyone suggest what windows versions are suitable for my mac book

Currently i am using Window XP sp3.

Here is my Mac book configuration:
Apple MacBook "Core 2 Duo" 2.1 13-Inch (White - Early 2008/Penryn) features a 45 nm "Penryn" 2.1 GHz Intel "Core 2 Duo" processor (T8100), with two independent processor "cores" on a single silicon chip, a 3 MB shared "on chip" level 2 cache, an 800 MHz frontside bus, 1 GB of 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM (PC2-5300) installed in pairs (two 512 MB modules), a 120.0 GB Serial ATA (5400 RPM) hard drive with "Sudden Motion Sensor" technology, an 8X/24X DVD/CD-RW "Combo" drive, an Intel GMA X3100 integrated "graphics processor with 144 MB of DDR2 SDRAM shared with main memory", and a 13.3" widescreen TFT active-matrix "glossy" display (1280x800 native resolution).

Stick with XP SP-3. Vista is a mess and Windows 7 requires more resources to run properly. Also, if you're into games, some games (especially older 16 bit games) will not run in Windows 7 at all. No problem in XP though.

You should always upgrade to the most current version of OS X you're using. So yes, upgrade to 10.5.8. Better yet, upgrade to Snow Leopard.
