BootCamp?

It will work just that you have to consider the worst as well as best scenario...Have you read this?

yes well after a fair bit of reading i found a program called nlite

that did the slipstreaming of the service pack 2 to the xppro install

the bizzare part was i had to use a dvd as the iso file it created was 977meg therefore would not burn to cd

anyways installed bootcamp made a mac drivers cd and then partitioned the mac drive to make a 40gig windows drive

the inserted xpslipstreamed dvd hit start installation and away it went

no dramas once xp installed put mac driver cd in and all good after that
