What's a 'souped up macbook'?
Here's some partition info from the Boot Camp installation and Setup guide
So, BootCamp will help you if you have only one partition on the hard drive. I canít partition my disk.
In order to partition your disk and install Windows XP using Boot Camp Assistant, the disk must be a single partition, formatted as a Mac OS X Extended (Journaled) volume. If you have already partitioned your disk using Disk Utility or some other utility, you cannot use Boot Camp Assistant until you restore your disk to a single-partition Mac OS X volume.
Boot Camp Assistant only works with internal disks. You cannot use Boot Camp Assistant to partition and install Windows XP on an external disk.
If you have data on the part of the hard drive that Boot Camp wants to use, then you may need to remove some files to get enough space to create the Windows partition. Keep in mind that OS X needs plenty of space to work also.
How much space is available on your hard drive now, and how large is the Windows partition that you want Boot Camp to create?
Serendipity is a lucky guess !
