Adventures in Boot Camp: Part 1

Windows on a Mac? Can it be done? I'll keep you posted.

OK, so I bought the new 24-inch iMac yesterday at the Apple Store and I'm in the process of getting it ready for some serious use. Now, as I've mentioned before, I own a Vista box and an old Compaq laptop besides my MacBook, Mac Mini and now, the iMac. But, for the first time, I will be installing Windows on an Apple box with the help of Boot Camp and report here how it went.

So far, I've downloaded the Boot Camp software and have my Windows Vista Ultimate in waiting next to me. Next, I need to partition my drive without screwing the Mac side up and get Windows installed. I'll keep you posted and wish me luck.

Any well-wishing or tips would be appreciated.

Now here goes nothing.
