Default There are legal ways

Obviously you can't take a copy of XP, slap on an installer and provide that entire image... this is illegal.

But... it would be possible to create an installer image, have the user provide their own windows XP image, have the user burn these to a CD and thus create themselves a simple idiot proof instalation CD.

This would also allow those of us with only access to a Mac system, but access to windows XP (Gracisouly and legally provided from school for free), the ability to load XP on our systems.

I would assume this would all come about in due time anyway, once all the kinks are worked out of the system, and once all the proper drivers are found/created.
