Talking Dual Boot Mac Windows x86??

Hi, I just installed Mac on my 40GB 7200RPM IDE Hard Drive.

I partitioned 1 20GB Mac, and then 2 MS-DOS partitions (one is 10GB, the other is like 400MB), I dont know what happened to the other 9GB

So now that Mac is installed, I want to put XP on and dual boot. How can I go about doing this? What is the best bootloader for Mac and Windows?

Thank you

beware that it might have to reformat if you dont boot properly from one os to the other.
