This link shows you how to create the usb drives without using a mac. Is there a way to combine the info there and here to do a dual boot with xp? Do I only need to partition xp and install the Chameleon 2 NBI bootloader to make it work?

Anyone tried the upgrade to SL 10.6.4? I installed it on my Mac Pro desktop and there is significantly slower loading of the OS and AOL so I am holding off on trying to upgrade my Hackintosh (which is running great in 10.6.3) until there is some experience posted.

First time post and utter OSX noob... anyway here goes...
After finding this post I thought it looked easy so reckoned I'd give it a blast. Picked up a so called 'scratch and dent' Mini 10v from Dell Outlet with XP, 160GB HDD, 1GB RAM, and a 6 cell battery pack for a measly Â£170. It turned up and is absolutely pristine, I guess the only issue might be the green cover, but hey, it's not that bad! Before embarking on the Hack I also got hold of 2GB of RAM and a bluetooth module for another Â£30 courtesy of ebay. Pretty easy stripdown really.
Anyway, second time of asking and I have a fully functioning, dual-booting Hackbook, no real problems experienced, other than not following the instructions to the letter ;o)
So first off, big thank you to gadgetlover and all the other contributors on this post who helped me determine what I needed to download and what pitfalls to watch out for.
Gonna try and let it do the latest big update tonight and see it it still works!!!
I'll let you know how it goes...
Well after a bit of a shaky start, all went well.
Having screwed up using NBI 0.8.3 and update 10.6.3 I did a bit of searching around and found a thread about the recent 10.6.4 update and gate it a try... I reinstalled SL and got my dual boot with XP working again as per gadgetlover's original post, then followed this little instruction from yestertech on the other thread (not sure if this will display properly?)
