Installed Apple’s Boot Camp on my MacBook Pro 2GHz machine today, and everything went swimmingly: Windows XP and the Mac drivers (ATI video card, wireless, sound card, etc.) installed, and no difficulties along the way. I had some initial problems connecting to my wireless network, but that seems related to the WEP key - if I disable WEP encryption from the shared Airport connection, I can connect with little problem. I’ve grown used to doing this anyways when I connect via my PSP or Nintendo DS. Dunno why, and don’t really care - if I walk outside I can’t reach the network, so I’m not too concerned about interlopers and it’d only be off for a very limited time anyways.
And, really, that’s the sole reason I’ve got Windows XP installed now: gaming. While I had every intention of attempting the same feat when the OnMac.net project hacked together a video driver, Apple just plumb ol’ made them irrelevant. Since I’ll still (naturally) be using OS X for Everything Else, I only set the WinXP partition size to 25 GB, which allowed me to format it as FAT32, which means OS X can read and write to it. And that it does: once I rebooted back into Tiger, there was the new partition already mounted, to which I started copying some files I had been downloading just for the occasion.
