Ipod Boot Disk?

Is there a way to boot an XP computer straight to a copy of XP running on a 5g ipod? Sorry if this has been discussed before, I am in a bit of a rush.

Unfortunately Windows doesn't like to boot from external drives without some significant hacking.

I'd suggest you look at BartPE and consider booting from CD/DVD.
