    I've got a copy of Windows XP, but it doesn't include SP2, so it does not work with boot camp.

    I've read how to slipstream SP2 into a bootable disk, but have been running into issues.

    I followed the directions listed here, http://www.winsupersite.com/showcase/windowsxp_sp2_slipstream.asp

    Finally when it comes to putting the disk into my mac, it shows up in finder as untitled CD.fpbf and I am not able to go through the boot camp setup with it.

    I've tried burning like 3 disks from different brands and still no luck.

    Any ideas?

    I've only ever used nLite to slipstream XP. You're not the first person to try the command prompt method and have it fail either.

    Did nLite work for you?
