    I upgraded my iMac to Leopard earlier this week, and I decided to try Boot Camp. I was able to create the partition for Windows and install Windows XP SP2 successfully. I logged into Windows and inserted my Leopard DVD to install the drivers. When I did, the DVD would spin up and down repeatedly and not do anything. When I ejected and reinserted the disk, it started the installation, but half way through, it started spinning up and down again and if I tried to do anything it caused Windows to freeze. I've tried wiping and reinstalling Windows multiple times, but it does the same thing every time.

    BTW, the DVD works perfectly when I try to run it in OS X.

    If it works in OSX, open it up and copy the Windows driver installer files to a thumb drive or burn them to a CD and run the installer app in windows.

    That's what I'd like to do, but I don't know how to access the Windows track on the disk from OS X.
