I would like to be able to run Windows via bootcamp on my Macbook Pro, but i want to have the max amount of space left on my Mac side for Final Cut Studio. I was wondering if there was a way that i could get an external hard drive, and run Windows from that. Someone told me tat it wouldn't work though, so is there a way that i could just have the core of Windows installed, and have all the programs on the hard drive? And if so, what's the minimum amount of spce needed on the Mac?
QUOTE Thanks

I don't think that's possible with Bootcamp. You may be able to do that with Parallels or VMWare Fusion but those aren't free.
