A king's ransom to he who boots Windows XP on an iMac

Okay, so it's not quite a "king's ransom" (and it doesn't necessarily have to be a "he" either), but currently there's $3338 in the pot for whoever is first to get Windows XP to boot up on one of the new iMacs: the Macs that are using Intel chips as their CPU. The winner must be able to demonstrate that their iMac can boot up the user's choice of either Mac OS X or Windows XP. So far all that's been produced to show for this endeavour are several "bricked" iMacs that have been irreversibly damaged from the effort and now rendered useless: basically a $1600 paperweight. Some are even trying to get the iMac to boot up Linux too. Can't wait to see if someone's able to pull this little trick off.
