    burn your xp iso to a disc using nero or something on a windows pc then go to bootcamp and set your partition to whatever amount of space you need and then it will tell you the install will begin and the mac will reboot and start to install windows. when windows is done with the install and your botted back up into windows then put your osX disc in and it will install the required drivers and then when you want to boot to windows when mac is off and you turn it on and hold the option button and choose which os to boot to. the main thing is you need to burn the iso to a disc
