You can hold down the option key while you start up the computer. It will give you a grey screen and give you choices of startup systems... Choose the Mac OS and see if the start up is quicker. Sounds like the windows xp setup isn't working properly. I'd think elimination of the existing pc partition on the hard drive while running in mac mode and then running Boot Camp according to apple's instructions. Boot camp is on the Leopard OS disc and will get your computer ready to instal windows xp with an authorized xp disc. After it's up and running in windows xp, you can reinsert the mac os disc while running windows and the drivers will be installed for you...it works great... Plus you can download a copy of apple's bonjuer software and it will help you set up your printers to work on your mac as well.... Good luck and let me know if you need more help... KEN
