Is there an excellent reference site that take you through the process of installing Windows XP Pro on a 2009 MM with Snow Lepard 10.6 OS X??

A Bootcamp for dummies would be great!! Smile

Regards,

Fleetz

Best one I know of is at Apple on their Boot Camp support area.

Setting Up Bootcamp is one of the easiest things I have done on my Mac. Just make sure you have a Windows CD with the Serial Key & when you boot into widows, make sure you install an Anti Virus program ASAP. If your unsure Print out the Guide in Boot Camp Support area.

Use the manual on apple support. Just be sure to have a copy of XP Service Pack 2. I managed to load Service Pack 1 on a machine when my other disk went missing. It is easier to load bootcamp than to upgrade a version of windows.
I tried bootcamp on one of my computers but instead went with Parallels to get some of the added antivirus benefits of a Mac/XP hybrid. Check out my blog and see what I did. After trying the two different styles, I decided Bootcamp was nice, but I still had too many issues on a pure windows system.
