Default XP/OS X dual boot on mini 10v - 06-06-2009, 01:44 AM

I've been reading this forum for about 2-3 weeks now but I still haven't found exactly what I'm looking for. My Dell Mini 10v is arriving tomorrow and I want to get straight to business setting up a dual boot with XP and OS X. I don't have access to a Mac, nor do I have an external DVD drive. What is the best way to begin?

Is there a way to install OS X without first removing the XP that comes on the system?

Also, can anyone point me to a pirate-bay type file suitable for this process. I assume any Mac OS X retail version would be fine and then I can use PowerISO to copy the files to a USB drive. Right?

Thanks to anyone who can help me out here!

We do not condone software piracy in this forum. If you want OS X, buy a retail copy.

Details about installing OS X as dual-boot can be found in the OS X section of the forum.
