    Alright, I hope this is in the right section. If not, my apologies.

    I'm about to upgrade to Leopard in about three weeks, and I need to find a copy of XP to put on Bootcamp. Now, I don't necessarily want to do this but I need to have something that I can then run Publisher on for work.

    I normally only upgrade OSes when I upgrade computers, so I don't have any idea about where to look to get XP at an inexpensive price. Everywhere I've looked (big box stores) seem to have it at full price (more than Leopard, even), and I'm not interested in paying that much.

    Thanks for any info!

    Only get Pro if you have a mac pro with 2 physical processors, otherwise its a waste of money.

    Thanks for the info. I didn't even think of an OEM disc. I've got a macbook, so I just need something simple so that I can do Windows-related stuff from home when I need to.

    Thanks again.
