That's what have been reported by those who have tried. BootCamp is  
the way to go for audio work under XP on an intel mac. I've also read  
that with the latest version of Parallels you can actually use the  
partition set up by the BootCamp installation. This gives you a Mac  
that may just run XP applications in Parallels when needed and when  
you want to do some audio work with XP you reboot into BootCamp/XP  
and have full access to hardware etc. meaning less latency and less  
CPU load.

I'm going that route myself in the future, the day one of my recent  
XP or OSX laptops breaks down.
