    Hey,

    I'm planning to buy Leopard when it comes out then install Windows XP Home Edition (with Boot Camp) on my MacBook. (I don't like beta stuff) I've tried partitioning the hard drive before with Boot Camp then I restarted, no problem. Except I noticed a slow-down during startup. Is it only the first time to check that the HDD has no problem? Or would I experience this slow-down every time?

    P.S. I partitioned 15GB (FAT32?) for Windows XP last time... if it matters. 1GB ram blah blah...

    In OSX, open System Preferences->Startup Disk->Make sure your OSX partition is selected :)
