    Wondering about Bootcamp
    Okay I need to know some basics and if this has already been posted, you could include a link, but I don't want to go through 110 pages =D

    I know what Bootcamp is, but, is all you need is -

    1. Bootcamp Assistance- Utilities folder
    2. Windows OS
    3. Backup of Mac OS


    Is that everything, or do I need to purchase the actual program Bootcamp?

    I have a Mac OS 10.5.8

    Also what are the versions that you can use with bootcamp for Windows?? XP, Vista, 98, 7??

    (Do i need to copy my entire hard drive?) If I need to do this, what is the easiest way to backup your hard drive if it is 84GB... do I need to go out and buy a external hard drive, or is there a simpler way??

    You want to install a complex operating system on a partition under a Utility without reading any of the instructions but waste time typing questions?
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
