How the heck do I boot windows on to my iMac Intel? I have a copy of all the win xp disks from my old win machine:) so I am ready.

Unless you feel like being a tester, I wouldn't recommend doing this. There are many issues to be worked out and many drivers are missing - for example the video driver I believe. You won't be able to do much for now. Better to wait. However, look further down on the forums. There's a "windows on mac" section. (The title is similar to that anyway.)

Well, the drivers issues aside, the environment is quite stable. I have setup my MBP for network access for the company I work at, and quite a bit works that I wasn't initially expecting. If you can stand the video that is about as slow as running OS X 10.4 on a Pismo... then things should be fine.

onmac.net has the instructions, although depending on your needs, it isn't for you. Quite a few things don't work nicely just yet.

You could start by posting in the correct forum, and reading the posts and guides already there :rolleyes:
