    according to Apple, you need "a full, single-disc version of Windows XP Home Edition or Professional with Service Pack 2 or later."

    looks like what you linked to fits the description :)

    You should be able to install SP1 with bootcamp and then upgrade to SP2. I know Apple says they require SP2, but I think that's for the drivers you'll install afterwards. AFAIK, any x86 OS could be installed with Boot Camp. You could probably do Windows 3.1 if you wanted to (although I suppose you'd need a CD install of that :D)
