    OEM disc with SP3 bundled = no-no for Boot Camp. You need a Windows XP SP2 disc. Also print out the Boot Camp install guide from here. Don't forget that after selecting the Boot Camp partition as the destination, you must still format it again using FAT32 or NTFS. If you select leave file system intact, you're setting yourself up for failure later. Also, before installing Service Pack 3 from Windows Update, download and run Boot Camp 2.1.
