    it is a long and complicated process

    this is a good guide:

    there is also a good thread in the forums with more mac specific info.

    EDIT: found the link:

    http://guides.macrumors.com/Booting_Windows_XP_From_An_External_Drive

    there it is.

    oh yeah, and it also involves opening up your computer and removing the hard drive. that is the only reason why i'm not doing it. but i REALLY REALLY REALLY want to. i just don't have enough space on my internal drive for a windows partition... :(
