    You can't do that with an iBook, only with Intel Based Macs (MacBook/Pro, iMac, or Mac Pro). You could pick up a copy of Virtual PC to run Windows on the iBook, which is a PPC based Mac.

    XP on an iBook...? Not really possible...

    XP on a MacBook...? No problem...

    Windows can only be installed on Intel Macs, not older Power PC Macs, I'm afraid.
