Drivers for Windows are all on the OS X install disk. Snow Leopard install will have Bootcamp 3.0 drivers. Insert the OS X disk under Windows and browse the disk for the drivers. You probably get a better experience if you install all the Bootcamp drivers in one package.

Did you use the disc that came with the MacBook or the one that came with your i5? They are particular to each machine until the specific drivers are folded in to the retail version.

There was a recent thread that had the wrong disc shipped with the system. You may want to contact Apple and make sure you have the right disc for your system.
