I have a Macbook & it's running on Snow Leopard. I need to use an application that is only available for Windows
. I have Bootcamp.
Is it possible to install Windows XP on my Macbook without the XP CD? Could I install it from my external HD?

All help is appreciated.

If you have an image of windows XP then you can restore the image to a USB thumb drive using Disk Utility. Partition the drive as FAT32 and verify then restore the image of XP then you should be able to run bootcamp and subsequently boot off the thumb drive to do the Windows installation.
