Ditching Parallels for Boot Camp: How do I move pre-installed Windows XP to BC?

Hello All! This is my first post but I've been a Mac user for a couple of years now. I have a black MacBook MA701LL/A 10.4 Tiger with Win XP Pro SP2 loaded on old Parallels version (forgot the version/updates no longer available on Parallels website) and would like to upgrade to Leopard.
My question is how can safely move my XP Pro and it's files from Parallels...and once upgrading/loading Leopard to my MacBook, move it into Bootcamp?
Thanks for all the help!

Short answer: No.
You wouldn't want to do it that way anyway since you'll run into driver issues and other problems. Install Leopard, run the BC assistant, create a new BC partition and use your original Windows XP Pro SP 2 full install disk (which I assume you have) for installation. Use the Leopard disk to install device drivers for Windows XP.
