    I'm new to Intel Macs and have installed XP Pro SP2 on my mini via Boot Camp. My question is, is there any way to pick the OS at startup?

    Hold the option key when you start up... it will give you the choice

    If you are using a Windows keyboard (or just a generic) it is the Alt key.

    If you end up putting MacFUSE and NTFS-3G on it to read/write NTFS in OSX this (the alt/command key) becomes the only method you can use to get from OS X to Windows.

    Make sure you hold it down soon after turning on the power! There is a small window for choosing.
