    I have a problem while installing windows xp pro on my macbook.

    I go through the process and when i get to choosing "the correct partition for Windows XP" “C: Partition3 <BOOTCAMP> [FAT32].” I hightlight it and press enter, and it automatically goes to the installation process, it skips the step where I Select an NTFS or FAT format...

    Any help?

    Had A problem with formatting bootcamp partition myself.
    Found a solution where I pressed F10 key at a particular stage in the install process (Windows XP Pro SP2 oem, 50GB partition NTFS in my case).

    I suggest you do a search for 'F10 during install format bootcamp' - sure you will find instructions. Not being a windows user, did the install for a friend, I can't remember the exact details.
