I would like to know how long it takes to install Boot Camp and XP. I have already downloaded BC and I have my XP disc in hand.

With three kids I just can't be tied up for 6 hours doing this. I have a new 2.4 core2 duo Aluminum IMac.

Thanks in advance.

BTW, I am looking for an average amount of time that is typically might take a person.

Is most of the time loading XP? So far (this is my first Apple ever) anything I have loaded on the iMac has only taken a few seconds.

BC is 350+ Megs so I thought it might take a long time to install, that is why I was asking.

Thanks
