    So, I will be buying a Macbook Pro for college like in a month & I need to know if I need to buy the MS Office 2008 CD's or if I already had the CD's could I just use those, do they need to be specifically for Mac or something? & If I have the Windows XP installation CD's can I make the partition with them or do they have to be for Mac also? Noob questions I know but I need to know before I buy so I dont make any big mistakes & end up messing things up. Thanks in advance

    Yes MS Office 2008 is for Mac OS X. If you have a Windows version of Office, that won't run on Mac OS X.

    As for installing XP: Apple - Support - Boot Camp
