The Apple site seems to indicate you need to use a Full version of XP? Is this true?

And regarding not being able to eject the cd to put in the second disk I read in another post - can this not be done using the eject button on the Apple keyboard?

You'll notice in the list on the Apple Boot Camp page that the driver disk created during the process contains the Windows-specific driver for the eject key on Apple keyboards.

You can only install the drivers from this disk once you've got XP up and running, i.e. after the installation process, suggesting that the eject key will not work during the installation itself.
