Ok ,

I figured I would make one of my first posts here a question...

Ive decided I am going to run Boot Camp on my new iMac and dugg out a copy of XP from 2002 that I recieved for free from a developers confrence.

Now Im pretty new to Macs, but am pretty good with PCs.

I know BootCamp currently only wants XP with sp2 intalled on the partition..
I also know there is a way to create an XP sp2 install disk using a 'SlipStream Method" Ive never done it before, but from what I understand is it works.

QUESTION:

Is there away to create a install disk using the SlipStream method using only my Mac?



I would prefer to do it all on my Mac....Ive Googled it a couple of times with no direct answer.

Help would be appreciated!

Thanks!

Nope you need a windows pc to slipstream the installation. You can't execute the SP2 update to your disc without having a windows computer
