    Ok, so here's the deal. I just got a new iMac, switching from a pc. The question is, I want to use my old hd from the pc w/xp already installed as my bc partition (after I convert the hd to an external usb2/fw400). Is there an easy way to do this? Or should I just deal with putting it on the internal hd?

    Although Macs can boot from an external USB disk, I am not positive about Windows, so IMO, you are better off jut doing a clean install on your iMac.
