Hey I had that problem with the hal.dll file while trying to install windows XP on my mac. So I had to follow this guide and make the partition 32 gigs for windows, which I find about 10 gigs too big for my needs. Does anybody know if it's possible to change the partition size? I heard leopard could do it, but disk utility doesn't seem to let me do it. I formatted windows in NTFS, so maybe that's why. Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks!
