    Right...I own a genuine XP Home with service pack 1.1 disk, but want to run a small partition on my mac for using games i own. However, boot camp requires service pack 2, I can't afford to pay out for parallels...(im a student and only paid for my mac this week so out of pocket) and i've heard VMware isn't very good with games made relatively recently i.e. coupl eof years. Any ideas?
    Thanks!

    nLite is rather easy to figure out. The article goes a bit to in depth for what you want. You only need to slipstream Service Pack 2 and make a new installation disc.

    The post-SP2 pack here integrates what you want after SP2 into one package.
