OK. I'm stumped. I decided to go ahead and setup a BootCamp partition on my Mac Pro. I installed a second hard drive and went thru the partitioning steps and everything was progressing fine. The problem I ran into was during the actual Windoze installation, it wanted me to install the second disk. This is Windoze XP Media Center edition. The question is, how exactly do I eject the CD to change it during the Windoze installation? The keyboard eject does not function, and obviously there is no eject button on the Mac Pro drive.

Thanks in advance. I'll see if I can find my other XP Home version which I think is only a single CD.

One happy switcher!
