    I installed win2k successfully on my macbook.

    How do you change the default boot to OS X instead of Windows, right now you have to hold down option to get to the menu to choose, but if you boot up and forget to do that it goes to windows.

    any ideas?

    If you choose the Mac OS X partition as your startup disk, you should be able to boot to OS X by default.

    I thought only Windows XP SP2 was supported on BootCamp?

    You can install 2K if you make up your own install package and fool the system. That is what he did....long story short ... :D

    Uhhh... all you have to do is place a bootable Win2K cd in and install it...

    "BootCamp" is simply the set of drivers and partition manager Apple uses. So the drives technically only support XP, but you can install whatever OS you want once you have the EFI update.

    Yeah, there's a preference pane in OS X that will allow you to choose your default startup OS. Select OS X and you should be good to go.

    You might want to review the links in this thread he did earlier. You will see there is a bit more to it than what you state....
