    Has anyone figured out a way to install XP on an external hard-disk yet? I'm interested in seeing how it performs but not so interested I can be bothered going through a backup, format and reinstall of my OS X partition.

    I think this would be very helpful. As when I buy my macbook I will need all the internal harddrive space for stuff. And I would only use XP once in a while. So I could just plug the drive in and boot from it.:D

    That would be great! I'd get a small, cheap external drive, and since i wont need XP a lot, I would just plug it in as I need it.

    I'm sure someone will figure out how to do that eventually. :eek:
