Default OS XP, post SL Installation? - 12-08-2009, 11:55 PM

I've gone through a number of guides but haven't found quite what I'm looking for.

I've just finished setting up OS X 10.6.2 on my Mini 10v and everything is running great. Unfortunately I've found a few very proprietary apps that I need that will only run in Windows... doh.

Are there any reasonably painless methods out there to take my current 160GB HFS partition to a 140GB HFS/20GB NTFS setup and then install the factory XP Dell Media that came with the Mini?

Thanks in advance! These forums have been THE place for support with this project - you guys rock
