    Its a 400mb version of windows xp. They cut out all the unnecessary stuff like outlook express, internet explorer all the modem utilities and a bunch of sutff.

    Oh, okay. Then as long as it is a full, legal version of Windows it should run fine on bootcamp or virtualization.

    Hope that helps!!!

    I have successfully used it in a virtualized environment (Sun xVM Virtualbox). Never spent too much time adding drivers for USB peripherals but I imagine it should work normally.

    You could probably use Windows Update for a lot of those drivers.
