    Hello. My iMac just died on me. So temporarily I dug out my 2006 macbook to replace it. Now, since it has been a long time since i used it. I realized that the superdrive from the macbook is not working properly. However, I need to install win XP via bootcamp for study issues. So, I created a Partition with Bootcamp on my macbook. Also, I have a windows desktop, and a windows XP CD. Here's my question. I know I can make an iso image with the win XP CD, then burn it on an external HD. Now, how can I make the macbook startup from the external HD and install from there?

    Thanks alot :)
