    XP is up and running with Boot Camp.:cool:

    Would it be possible to split part of the XP partition off with Partitio Magic?
    XP drive is formated in NTFS, could make a 5G partition in Fat32 for transferring files between XP & Mac:confused:

    Just convert the entire Windows partition to FAT32... or do you need NTFS for some reason?

    ?

    When I was looking around, came across some posts that indicated NTFS might be a little more stable, faster, better than Fat32, and I don't see myself doing much file transfer so went with . Was more curious than anything else.

    Switching from XP:
    Main reason for wanting to keep XP - Microsoft Money & Quicken (Quicken does not make it easy to take files between mac & pc and I like PC version better) .

    NTFS *is* better, but as a secondary operating system, that wouldn't be an issue.
