When I try to use Boot Camp to install Windows XP, it says it wants to install Windows 7... Can I ignore that and just install XP? The reason I want to install XP instead of 7 is because: 1) I have a Windows XP license, but I don't have a Windows 7 license; and 2) I need to run Deep Freeze and am not sure whether 7 supports DF.

It seems a bit tricky and a pain in the arse but it's possible.
