    I have installed Windows XP using Bootcamp on my iMac at work but whenever I hold down the option key when the iMac boots, it doesn't give the option to boot to Windows.

    When's the right time to press the option key?

    Hold down option immediately on system turn-on.

    Just a thought, but you did reformat the drive from the XP installer, not just from boot camp, yes? If you didn't, you'll need to re-install as the partition won't be bootable.
