Hello!

I'm planning to install windows XP alongside with Mac OS. It seems that in my country it's nearly impossible to find an english Windows XP. Everything sold around is localized version.

Hence is the question - whether bootcamp supports installation of non-english versions of Windows.
I suspect the answer should be positive, since I assume that during install the bootcamp hands over the control to the windows installer, however I want to be on a safe side

Thanks!
