Apple Releases Boot Camp
7:41 AM | Evan Holt | 66 comments
In a stunning turn of events, Apple has released a public beta of Boot Camp which allows you to install Microsoft Windows on an Intel Mac. This is a technology preview of an upcoming feature in 10.5 Leopard.
The set-up looks to be simple, as Boot Camp burns a CD with the drivers needed for the Mac hardware (such as Video, Airport, Bluetooth, Networking and Audio) and the software walks you through setting up hard drive space for the Windows install. After the installation you can hold down the 'Option' key to choose to boot either OS X or your Windows install.
Mac OS X Tiger v10.4.6 (check Software Update)Visit the link at Apple's site below to read more and download the beta.

10GB free hard disk space
An Intel-based Mac
A blank recordable CD
A printer for the instructions (Youll want to print them before installing Windows, really.)
A bona fide installation disc for Microsoft Windows XP, Service Pack 2, Home or Professional (No multi-disc, upgrade or Media Center versions.)
