I'm getting a MacBook Pro, and I have a few questions about BootCamp for people that have used it.

1. Has anyone had any serious problems?
2. Where can I get a cheap copy of Windows XP?
3. How hard is it to install Vista beta?
4. How big should the Windows partition be on an 80GB Hard Drive?

1. i can't speak for everyone, but I haven't
2. If you're buying you MBP from a reseller, they'll sell you a OEM copy of XP for around 99 bucks.
3. I've yet to load Vista, but i've seen others with it installed.
4. Depending o what u want to do. I gave my windows partition 15G on my 60G drive.

Eeek. I think I'll wait for Leopard, I read some topics in that forum you posted and it sounds pretty scary.

As for Installing Windows Vista beta 2, I'm having a hell of a time. I finally got Vista to install (third time's the charm), but now I can't seem to install the Mac drivers from the bootcamp CD.
