    Well, I went to the store the other day to buy myself a disk of Windows XP Home Edition for bootcamp, however, I came across two disks. An upgrade version and a full version. I've read mixed things about which disk I'm about to get, so I just thought I'd ask you guys myself which disk I'm supposed to get to run on Bootcamp...

    Vista is fine. You also get Windows Media Center in Home Premium which is well worth the $10 over Basic. Not to mention 64-bit goodness.

    So, I would have to get the full version? Not the upgrade?

    Yes. Upgrade assumes you have a (compatible)version of windows already installed.
