Hello,

Maybe a little late however, if you are using Bootcamp and were affected by the boot.ini problem and have no WinXP CD:
Download and create a boot disc of 'Knoppix' when in Mac OS X, when booted in knoppix you can force mount your WinXP partition and edit/create a boot.ini file.

Knoppix
http://www.knoppix.org/

I downloaded and used: KNOPPIX_V5.1.1CD-2007-01-04-EN.iso
(may require Toast to burn the iso)

How to force mount while in Knoppix:

Open a terminal and mount the drive manually using this command:

sudo mount -t captive-ntfs -o uid=knoppix,gid=knoppix /dev/hda1 /mnt/hda1

(replace "hda1" for the name of your windows partition)
