    Like It says.
    Also...
    Out of five stars how would you rate the ease of applying this hack/patch/whatever you want to call it.

    Once the hacked windows xp cd is made, the process doesn't take too long.

    It's hard to give an estimate because I had all day and I didn't keep an eye on the clock.

    Can't have taken me more than an hour to fully do everything.

    Pretty easy also.

    well it took me ages to get a Working CD of XP burnt ,

    but once i got the CD burnt it was on withing 30 min and i was working just after that

    just remember to press "g" twice on boot once you have installed :rolleyes:

    ease of install - 3/5
    burning of CD with XP image plus Patch 1/5
    setting up HDD for XP/OS X - 2/5
    if i had to do it again install 3/5

    Mac Mini Solo 512mb XP Pro / OS X 10.4.5

    I just got a Windows-Smart friend to do it for me. He did it in about 2 minutes :D
