    Hi:

    I'm getting ready to purchase an iMac and I'm wondering that if I also purchase Microsoft's Windows XP OEM version OS if it will work on Boot Camp. Thanks!

    Should work fine. You might want to also look at VMWare Fusion or Parallells. They will let you run Leopard and Windows at the same time along with having the ability to move files between the two operating systems.

    I believe it needs to be an SP2 version though.

    That's correct - for Boot Camp you need SP2, but not if you're using Fusion or Parallels.
