Do normal windows drivers for example, Printers, Scanners, Mice etc etc work on the Mini Mac when WindowsXP is installed onto it?

Yes. So long as you meet the system requirements stated by the vendor.

When you've loaded and booted XP (even on your mac), you are then using a regular 'ol PC. (although, I wouldn't recommend playing around with any software that involves BIOS hacks)

Keep in mind, if you purchase a new printer (for example) and install the XP drivers, that will not make it work in OS X. So make sure, when buying new peripherals, that they support XP and OS X.
