I am looking to use bootcamp to partition my drive to run Windows XP. How much space have all of you used in your Windows partition? I will be using it mainly to run some RTS games, and maybe Office.

Games and Office take up a considerable amount of drive space. Windows XP Home edition SP 2 installs in around 2 Gb with some room to spare. I would create a partition between 10 to 15 Gb in size. If you plan on running very large games such as the latest Flight Simulator which uses lots of drive space for scenery files, then you'll need even more space.

Regards.
