I know this must have been answered before... but I'm not sure how/where to look, so please forgive.

When I get my new iMac, I would like to install bootcamp to run Windows. Where can I buy a Windows XP SP2 disk? Or do I need to get Vista?

Thank you!

You can pretty much buy Windows XP at any electronics store. However, I recommend you purchase from Newegg.com. Watch out though, because Newegg sells retail and OEM versions of XP. Retail versions cost more but you can transfer the license from one computer to another. An OEM version is cheaper but once it's installed on a certain machine, it will only activate on that machine.

It means Original Equipment Manufacturer.

OEM definition.
