I expect to install Snow Leopard when it arrives but am currently running Boot Camp with XP and also bringing windows to my Mac Desktop using Fusion.

Will I have to rebuild my system from scratch or will Snow Leopard just replace Leopard?

TIA

You won't have to rebuild. Once Boot Camp has created the other partition, the two OSes are separate and distinct.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
