I'm going to install Windows XP on my MacBook Pro using BootCamp so that I can play TR III for PC. However, I want it to use up as little space as possible, considering I will only be playing a game on it, and not using anything else. I would appreciate any advice.

Also, is it easy to uninstall Windows if I ever need to?

1. While installing XP manually untick all unnecessary components: Briefcase, Clipboard view, standard games, etc.

2. After installation is complete use XP lite (http://www.litepc.com/xplite.html) utility to remove unnecessary (hidden from user) features.

And yes, it's easily removed, if you don't need it anymore.

It's quite easy to remove it. Just use your Boot Camp assistant in OS X to remove the Windows partition.
