    Hey all,

    I was wondering if it were possible to boot camp both XP and Vista on the same box?

    Within Leopard, i ran the Boot Camp application, but i didn't see where i could make another windows partition...just delete my current one.

    Thanks!

    In summary, I'd like to partition my drive three ways: Leopard, XP, and Vista....could this be done? thanks again!

    I don't believe that is possible with boot camp.

    You could make 3 partitions on your harddrive using the Disk Utility, make 2 FAT partitions and install visa and xp on them. Should be no problem.

    Just put in the leopard disc in windows to install the boot camp drivers and you should be set to go

    It's in your Utilities folder (which is in your Applications folder). ...Although, this process may become quite involved for someone very new to macs (personally, I'm not even positive it would work).

    ^okay...hmmm....

    Also i was under the impression that i now have my Leopard partition and XP partition (15GB), if i want to make my XP partition bigger, i thought i could do that from the Boot Camp GUI?

    (could've sworn i saw an Apple promotional video, doing that...)

    Can it be done?

    thanks!
