    So I tried bootcamp. For whatever reason my XP Pro install disc is not recognized by my iMac. I've tried burning a copy (some say it helps...and yes it is SP2).

    The problem is that I've already created a 32gig partition. How do I get that partition deleted WITHOUT affecting my OS X partition?

    in bootcamp utility, there should be something that lets you delete the partition (i have done it before)

    there's only threee choices:

    1. burn drivers
    2. start the windows installer
    3. restore the startup disk to a single volume
