    I just re-installed Leopard and created a Vista bootcamp partition. I have a few questions:

    1.) I didn't do enough planning before hand; I think I might need more room for the Vista partition. My recent searches have made me believe I would have to reinstall. Is this true?

    2.) I have the wireless apple keyboard (bluetooth). When Vista boots I have to login but my keyboard isn't recognized. After I boot up, it still isn't. I have to turn off the keyboard and turn it back on to resolve the issue and have it paired. Any ideas here?

    3.) Lastly, I have an external My Book (I think that's what it's called), WD external hard drive. I have installed drivers for it; however, Vista doesn't want to recognize it. Suggestions?

    I have found the problem to #3 -- I reformatted the external drive to factory settings so now it's FAT32. Maybe it was in a Mac format that was unrecognizable to Windows? Now my Windows and Leopard partitions can both see the external drive.

    Any ideas on problems #1 and #2?

    1. Yes you need to reinstall.
    2. Wireless keyboard isn't compatible with Windows. Just pair it, it's not that much trouble.
