    Default Adding XP partition.

    I'm running 10.6.5 on my Samsung N110 but I need to use windows for a specific program.

    I don't want to start from scratch or use a VM. If I make a new partition for XP on my current Mac drive am I going to face MBR problems?

    how is the drive formatted? if its HFS, you're pretty much SOL unless you use windows 7. if its MBR, you're good to go. make the partition in disk utility, and make another partition, about 1GB in size, and install the bootloader on it. after you install windows, go into FDISK (or partman, forget which one it is in XP) and set the 1GB partition (your bootloader partition) as active. it will boot both XP and OS X.
