What you need to know

What you need to know:

Why would a person want to do this?

Certain games, Microsoft's Outlook e-mail program and many other programs don't work on Macs. Apple's Boot Camp software lets users install Windows XP on a Mac to run those.

What's needed to do this?

An Intel-based Mac from Apple; version 10.4.6 or later of Mac OS X and Windows XP with Service Pack 2; and Boot Camp.

Is Apple going to start selling Windows?

Not a chance. And Apple's not going to help you with installation either. If you want to try Boot Camp, you're on your own.
