    Click on the Bootcamp Assistant (the icon that looks like the drive, and inside is a I think package file. Open that file up and it will install Boot Camp. Run boot camp and it will be pretty self explanatory. :) It'll tell you how to create the cd and do everything. It's very easy. :)

    THANK YOU Nyzrox! but still ...

    I did that and got "You must update your computer Firmware before using set up assistant" , I did Update the Firmware already! Also check under Utilities MacBooK Pro SMC Firmware Update Icon and got " your Mac Book Pro is up to date with version 1.0 of the Mac Book Pro SMC Firmware Update " would you help ? :)

    I think your problem is that the firmware update you want is the 1.0.1 firmware update not the SMC firmware update. Check page 2 of the updates.
