    I know you can hold control to show boot options, but by default, it boots into XP. How do I make it so that when I start up the computer it allows me both options (without having to hold the option button)? Thank you

    In OSX, System Preferences->Startup Disk->Network Startup :)

    I tried that, it still boots up into Windows by default when I restarted...

    I can highlight Mac OS X and it'll auto boot into there. if I hold down alt-option, I can see both disks and choose from there. This is fine. Thank you.

    from Apple:

    How do I choose the operating system that starts up (boots) my Mac?

    After running Boot Camp Assistant and installing Microsoft Windows and the Boot Camp Drivers, hold the Option (Alt) key when you start up to switch between Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X. Use the Startup Disk control panel in Windows or Mac OS X Startup Disk preferences to set the default operating system to use each time the computer starts up.
