    I'm planning on installing Windows 7 RC via boot camp when it comes out, but I've lost the Leopard disc needed to install the drivers. Apple's website has Boot Camp Update 2.1 for Windows Vista 32...will this work, in other words, does this have all the drivers needed for the installation?

    You know, maybe it's not appropriate to mention this but, on this forum, I have seen so many people claim they lost/misplaced/dog ate their OS disc; I know us [former] pc folks jealously guard our OS discs because we use them so often to reinstall the OS when it's slow, bloated or alternate Tuesday but did the Mac guys think they were never going to need them? sheesh.......

    You can order a replacement disc from Apple. It'll cost you a few bucks.

    Ummmm, to run the Windows programs that don't have Mac equivalents, or programs that you don't want to spend the $$$ to duplicate, if you already have them (like many games).

    Yes :)
    Many people need to use Windows for a variety of reasons. I have to use Windows for work so I prefer to use my MBP with Windows on it rather than having to carry 2 laptops around with me.

    Silly? I think ignorant is the better word to use here.

    To the OP, the drivers you seek are on the Leopard disc. Your best bet is to get a copy of the Leopard disc either from a friend or to contact Apple for a replacement (not positive if they would do this or not).
