    You'll need to partition your MacBook's internal hard drive.

    Besides being decidedly slow already, do you really think that running XP off of a 1.8" HDD would be fast, anyway?

    This has been discussed in great lengths with instructions and real world examples.

    Google or search these forums will have the answer. I just did.
