Can I use different OS X install disc to get Windows drivers on my Mac?

    Hi all,

    I had to partition and install windows xp on my mac to run a few work applications. I currently run 10.5.8 on my Mac. I don't have my original Leopard install disk that came with my Mac in order to load the drivers into windows. However, I found a Leopard 10.5.4 install disk for pretty cheap (original Apple disk, not a fake). Can I just use that one, which I believe should have the drivers?

    Many thanks.

    If you run the BootCamp installer, it will give you an option to download the latest Windows drivers and install them on a USB Flash Drive or CD disk.

    Edit: I just noticed you said you were running XP ... I think I read somewhere on this forum that the latest drivers were only for Windows 7, so your only option for XP drivers probably will be an old OSX installation disk. You will probably be fine with the disk you have. Sorry...
