    Looking to get it legally (which makes me wary of ebay, in this case). Just want the cheapest FULL (not upgrade) version I can get. Where should I look? Thanks!

    Craigslist. I got a new XP Home OEM disk for $75 from somebody that wanted XP Pro and had bought the wrong version.

    I got a legit OEM version of XP on ebay for about $70 IIRC. Installed fine with Bootcamp and has been all good.

    XP Pro, SP2
