    I recently bought a MBP 13" and plan to install windows XP SP2 on it via bootcamp. However, I've just read a few articles online about not being able to write onto the HDD while using windows xp since the partition would be formatted in ntfs? Does that mean I wouldn't even be able to install programs on my windows xp in boot camp??

    Basically what this means, is that you won't be able to read/write to the MAC side while in windows. But, when you are on the windows side, you will have complete control over what goes on. So don't worry, you'll be able to install programs :)
