    I cannot write to my mac partition from my windows xp pro bootcamp installation. when it try to save a file from xp/bootcamp to my mac partition i get this error message:

    "Cannot copy xx from xp: Access is denied.
    Make sure the disk is not full or write protected and that the file is not currently in use"

    Bootcamp is formatted in hfs, and I am trying to use a program called MacDrive 6.1.5 but it doesn't seem to be working...

    how do i convert my mac partition to be read/write for xp pro?

    Install Bootcamp 3.0 drivers from the SL install disk. Windows should then show OS X drives in Windows Explorer. You may have to adjust the drive settings in properties to release it to OS X.
