is it possible to connect an ibook to an external monitor? and i don't mean one of the new expensive flat screens...just my old 21" monitor...

also...since i don't have OS X yet, i don't know about this...is it really possible to install Windows XP on the hard drive and boot to that as needed? can this be done with OS 9 too? i know, i know...why would i do that?! i am searching the possibility of splitting my time between europe and the states and i NEED to take everything with me on a laptop...and i need a pc from time to time...

thanks for any help...jv

well you could run virtual PC (which runs on both 9 and X) but you can't just boot up in XP on your laptop. also, another thing to keep in mind is that virtual pc would be a lot slower than having an actual pc
