    Is there a way to setup my iMac so that it boots to Macosx by default, instead of it booting into the last OS I was using? Or even give me the selection between OSX and XP every time I boot up?

    yeah

    You need to go into system preferences.. And I think it's called Boot properties or some crap like that.. Click which OS you want to start and just close out.. It might actually be called Start Up Control....

    Set the default OS to boot in System Preferences/Control Panel.

    If you want a boot selector all the time, try refit http://refit.sf.net

    System Preferences -> Startup Disk. Select your OS X partition.

    And if you want the option to boot either way, press and hold the OPTION key when booting.

    It will provide you the bootable partitions from which you can select whichever you want.

    Have you installed the drivers that Boot Camp made you put on a CD?
