    Just yesterday I installed XP via Boot Camp and gave it 32GB. Now I want to install Windows 7 32-bit that I downloaded from MS.com. Do I need to delete XP or can I just install and it will replace windows xp?

    This is Windows 7 RC

    I used Burn for mine. But if you have Toast Titanium, that is good too. Another good one is, Disk Utility.

    Do you have to unzip or anything first, or just drag it in?

    As I recall, you mount the .iso in Disk Utility and burn it from there

    You can also just click Burn Image from the menu.

    Nope, just drag it in. ".iso" files are CD/DVD images that are ready to burn.
