    Hi, seems XP cant find my network hardware so cant connect to internet via wireless or ethernet. Can anyone suggest why / or possibly where to get drivers if this is the reason ?

    thanks

    After installing Windows, did you insert the system disk that came with your computer/Snow Leopard disk to install the drivers?

    Otherwise, there are standard drivers you can get, I think it might be broadcom but I'm not sure at the moment (obviously from another computer or the Mac side).

    Yeah, it says somewhere in the BC instructions, but once Windows is loaded up you're on your own with a fresh version on it with no specific drivers or anything like that. Once you pop your Mac disk in it will start doing what it needs to do.
