I bought and installed OS X Leopard and set up boot camp with windows xp. I've been using boot camp fine for a few months until just recently my macbook is stuck in windows xp. I try to restart windows and when the grey screen pops up usually I hold down CTRL and can switch between OS, but recently the grey screen pops us and I hold down CTRL and nothing happens. I just goes boots windows. I've tried both shutting down and restarting windows with no luck. Any suggestions?

In Windows Control Panel, but after that I can't remember (I don't have a PC in front of me) there is an option about which OS you want to boot into by default - in your case it will be Windows, but you can set it to Mac.

Sorry I can't be any more specific, but I am sure that one of the more knowledgeable people here will sort you out soon.

To make choosing the OS easier at startup, I use BootPicker (see my signature) which is excellent.

Startup Volume in Control Panel. And I believe it's the Alt key, not Ctrl.

I judge you when you use poor grammar.

It is definitely the option (alt) key you're suppose to hold down at startup, not the ctrl key.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
