    I loaded Windows XP Home Edition onto my 10.5 iMac, and it worked just fine, except that the internet didnt work on the Windows part. I rebooted and went back to Mac, and the internet worked just fine. I only know how to hook a computer up to wireless, not broadband like I have on this computer. Please help!

    You have to be in Windows to install Windows drivers for your Windows installation to use.

    Yes, you need to install the drivers in Windows for things to work. I hope you're not letting your friend install Leopard from your disc.

    Because it would be breaking EULA as you would be installing it on two computers (unless it's a multi licence copy)

    A friend is not family in the same household, so it would be against the EULA.

    Well I would have just used the multi-thingy-m-bopper. That was a close one.
