    Currently my Mac's partition scheme looks like the picture below:

    Can I install XP onto "Windoze" partition, formatting to NTFS (it is currently FAT32) just like on a PC, then use rEFIt to dual boot with Mac? Thanks in advance.

    You can probably make that work, but I certainly wouldn't try without a full backup.

    NOTE: You can't use Boot Camp Assistant at all in this scenario, so you get no handholding.
