- Ability to install Windows XP on any internal disks

I am hopeful...

Is there ANY way to use BootCamp on an external HD? I mean, great that you can use them on any INTERNAL HDs, but the thing I am looking for is a way to install it an external HD...

Any suggestions?

I don't know how it works, but this might be worth a read.

where is the support for the sound card the stupid sound card drivers still do not work in windows xp media center edition

also where is the apple remote drivers kinda want to use the remote controller for the itunes in windows

so far this project is a farse they give us things we do not want and things we do not need for instant the apple keyboard has drivers built into windows xp service pack 2 you do not need the drivers from apple second why doesn't the sound card work in windows xp media center it is still windows xp pro with service pack 2 but the drivers keep saying this driver is not compatible with this version of windows

Apparently you're confused. This is a beta release and it's free. There is no promise that it will work correctly until it's released. They're being generous by providing it until then.

And the word is farce, with a C.

farce  [fahrs] Pronunciation Key - noun, verb, farced, farc‧ing.
–noun
1. a light, humorous play in which the plot depends upon a skillfully exploited situation rather than upon the development of character.
2. humor of the type displayed in such works.
3. foolish show; mockery; a ridiculous sham.

I don't know why anyone would call Boot Camp a fraud. It's been a solid beta from day one. At this point, they just want get you into XP. Goodies like the Apple remote will probably come with Leopard.
