    I just got my 20", but since I had older files I only have 168GB free, I'd like to allocate 60GB for XP and leave the rest for OS X. Maybe I didn't read the tutorial right but it said something about reformatting my mac.

    Yes, you need to COMPLETELY clear out your hard drive/reformat to do the install. Back it up to an external, then proceeed as you will.
