    I'm wondering, when there will be a single downloadable file for burnig onto another disk with XP. I ask this as I'm about as technically minded as an Amoeba :eek:

    What do you mean exactly?

    A pre-fixed-'n-patched XP SP2 CD? (that IS floating around the torrents... ;) )

    Or do you mean also the few small steps necessary in the Mac OS X environmnet (i.e. copy the xom.efi file, and blessing it)?

    You don't have to be highly computer-savvy to work it out... it's really easy to follow the steps.

    If that means 1 file to put on the Mac in order for me to run Windows XP on the Intel iMac yes :)

    I understand I have to reformat the HD of the Mac (not as HFS) partiotion it for OSX & XP Install OSX then copy a file to what will be the XP Partition and then install XP onto it? Is that kinda the Jist of the whole process?

    Well, that's not really what you do... You should read through the How-to guide again.

    If you really feel uncomfortable about doing something like it then you should try to get assistant from a more tech-savvy individual. While many here in the forums have a lot of knowledge of both OS's, that dosen't include everyone. Like they have been saying in other threads this is a hacked solution and not for everyone. If you want to try it be very careful and seek help.

    Thanks asencif, MacsRgr8 has been a great help thus far :)

    My daughter doesn't know, but it's her Mac I'm going to butcher :rolleyes: However she has very little on it at present so that's one blessing I guess.

    I shall definitely ask prior to doing anything less than favorable :eek:
