    Ive just ordered myself a new mac pro.

    Apple Wireless Keyboard & Mac OS 065-7708
    Two 3.0GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon 065-7534
    2GB (2x1GB) 065-7175
    ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT 256MB GDDR3 065-7182
    500GB 7200-rpm Serial ATA 3Gb/s 065-7198
    500GB 7200-rpm Serial ATA 3Gb/s 065-7190
    500GB 7200-rpm Serial ATA 3Gb/s 065-7195
    1TB 7200-rpm Serial ATA 3Gb/s 065-7548

    I intend to run XP on this machine for the majority of my music production - which involves running something called Boot camp i believe ?

    Where does this Boot camp usual sit on the system drive, is it in its own partition ??

    I wish to run a RAID 0 for two of the 500GB HD Drives - is this possible and how is it done once i've unboxed the machine ?

    Once RAID 0 is setup .. is it possible to then Partition the array into two separate partitions ... one for the Mac OS and one for the XP os.

    thanks for you time ....

    It's included with Leopard. It uses its own partition.

    If you don't need to run OS X, you must just do a clean install of XP on this machine.
