    Which type of partition should I use? I think (NTFS would work well for me) I am only using XP for gaming.

    Would a 10GB Partition be enough?

    How large is XP(I think I heard 1GB)?

    Will I need to download any software to make games run the best?

    I am short on Blank CD's can I just burn the drivers on a DVD?

    Any other words of Advice?

    FAT32 is writeable from OS X, NTFS is only readable, for that I'd stick with FAT32

    It should be okay as long as you don't plan to have a ton of games installed at once, though you may want a little larger.

    The install is close to 3 gig I believe, though there is a lot of stuff you can remove.


    I was able to use a DVD+RW.
