hey guys, so i got my MBP and have been loving it!

two questions:

when i try to install xp through bootcamp, the windows setup begins but then tells me to 'insert XP disk into drive a:' ; the problem is the disk is already in the drive (duh), and i think its referring to a: as a floppy drive?
i thought maybe my xp didnt have sp2 since it seems thats whats been causing people trouble, so i streamlined sp2 into the xp disk but its still not working.

any ideas what could be causing this?

second question should be pretty simple:

when osx launches, my applications folder is open. it wasnt always like this, how can i undo it? is there a 'start up' folder where you can control what launches when os x does?

thanks so much for your help, you guys!

I don't know the answer, but I do know that there is actually a seperate boot camp and parallels forum that this thread would do nicely in.
