Heya quick question about bootcamp:

If I have bootcamp partition my hard drive and install windows, will I later be able to erase windows and merge the now empty partition space with the rest of the hard drive?

So take a 120gb HD and partition it - 100 for OSX & 20 for Windows
Erase the 20 and add it back to the 100 to make it whole again (120gb)

just be sure to use the boot camp assistant to erase your boot camp partition.

You can erase the partition using disk utility also. BC is known to have problems sometimes in reuniting the two partitions.

Heya,

Thanks everyone! I got windows running on my mac - only need for a few xp-only programs + 1 game.

One question I have is: how do I right click in windows on my mac? Ctrl+Click doesn't work.

Thanks!

If you have installed BC drivers for windows then place two fingers on the trackpad and press the trackpad button. That will provide right click menu.
