    I got Crossover games so I could play my Half-life 2 with Counter strike:Source,but im not quit sure what to do? I put the disc in and made a windows xp bottle(not sure if thats where i messed up because i dont have windows install disc if needed) but then it asked to install half life source so i started,but near the end(i assume the end) of downloading the disc 1 it stopped spinning and an error message popped up saying it could not complete it. what do i need to do? Thanks

    Not really sure you should even try this.
    Crossover is emulating, so it is extraordinarily slow.
    If you have an Intel Chipset, just go with Boot Camp.:D

    I think I have intel, so is bootcamp alot better? I heard you cant run Leopard with it. So will I constantly have to be switching between windows and leopard? Or is it alot easier than I am making it sound?

    All bootcamp does is it creates a dual boot option for your mac. you're splitting your harddrive into 2 partitions. One for OSX and one for Windows. When you start the computer hold the option button and it will take you to the bootloader screen where you will be able to pick OSX or windows. You wont be able to have both running at the same time so to access the other you will need to restart your computer.

    However, If you're on OSX and you have VMware or Parallels, then you will be able to load that windows partition as an emulator.
