    I hope this is easy to answer. I'm new to mac.

    I've tried to install windows XP through boot camp-assistent. Now i have made a second partition, for windows. Windows doesn't work yet, i think i need my mac OS X CD to install some drivers from.

    When i boot up my system, it automatically says "press any key to boot from CD" or something like that. Now i have to push "option key" every time i boot up, to choose which partition i want to boot..

    My question is: How do i make it automatically boot up from the macintosh HD, so it launches Mac OS X?

    First post :)

    System Preferences > Startup Disk, then select your OS-X volume.

    Hope that helps.
