    I want to use windows xp with boot camp in OS X 10.5.

    Just some quick questions:

    1) Does running Windows slow down the Mac partition at all?

    2) Any time I turn on the computer, will I have to choose between OS X and XP?

    3) How large should the XP partition be if I am only going to use it to download some applications?

    4) If I later decide that I do not like boot camp, can I revert to an OS X only computer?

    5) IS the setup process fairly simple?

    Sorry about all the questions.
