I'm not clear as to what you're asking.

To install/run BootCamp, you need SP2 of Windows XP Home or Professional.

I've read that people have used their own-created slipstreamed CDs/DVDs to build their XP environments, if that's what you're asking.

nlite

and no because you need to run EXE files and dos commands to do a slipstream, has to be done on a PC
