    How much disk space do you have spare?

    I found 15GB worked for me.

    XP generally takes around 4-6 GB with a fresh install. I'd allow at least 15 GB for your Boot Camp partition, depending on how much you think you're going to use it (i.e. how much stuff you want to save on the windows side).

    I left 40 gigs and have used 1/2 just from the OS, Office, Photoshop, Nero and a handful of other programs I need just to make windows "usable" for me. 20 gigs left over for windows media files, and the odd game. The other 80 gig is for OSX.
