As for why it keeps crashing, check your download MD5 against the MD5 from the site, make sure they match, if they do, try to reburn the disk at the slowest speed possiblt, this cannot be stressed enough, if it burns too fast, you ill end up with a bad disk.

Now, I've been using Linux for a couple of years, but just got an iMac - other way round to you. From what I can glean with my scant knowledge I think you need to enable Bootcamp in your Mac to dual boot with other systems - try looking at the XP instructions and tailor it to Mint.
I've not dared to take the Bootcamp plunge yet as i don't want to chance destroying my beautiful Leopard, so I'm still running my Linux installs through VM, but my stepson dual boots to XP with no problems.
