I know that this question is not appropriate but is it posible to install Windows XP on Powerbook G4? I really like Apple's design and quality and I'm a proud user of 3G iPod but I really need windows XP for Autocad. Thanks for help

Nope impossible.....You can use VirtualPC which is a Windows Emulator. It doesnt support 3D graphics yet

Don't forget to use the new User Reputation System

My daughter is in the same situation. She needs to run AutoCAD, which does not run on Apple hardware. So I will have to buy her a PC laptop. Since I work for IBM, I guess I will be getting her a ThinkPad.
