Installing XP Part II - How to get around CD read errors
Though my MacBook still didn't recognize the XP install CD, all my other Macs do. As I mentioned below, I made a disc image of the XP install disc and saved it to my MacBook. Next, I burned that image to a CD.
When I fired up BootCamp again, and used the copy of XP I had burned to a CD-R, everything worked like a charm.
