    Did you follow the Bootcamp instructions and pop in the OS X disc? That's what supplies the drivers for XP on your Mac.

    So did you already merge the partitions?

    If you did, then you need to follow the instructions in that message to create the partition again, and reinstall XP. Once that is done, insert your Install Disc 1 in Windows and the drivers should start to install.

    You don't need the Assistant to burn a drivers CD anymore. Your OS X install disc has the drivers on it. Just boot into Windows, insert the disc, and it should autorun the installer.

    thanks for the help all! but,
    ok, so that should of been a no brainer. i have a 20g partition that semi-smoothly runs XP. but i installed steam and such and it keeps crashing on me. and when i move windows around it is a little slow in drawing the frame again. it lags or leaves a streak on the screen for a second.

    where can i get updated video drivers?

    That is most likely a side effect of not installing the video driver, or any of them for that matter. Install the drivers from the OS X boot disk/ leopard disk.

    Updated video drivers? What are your specs?

    Does your macbook have the... GMA 950, GMA X3100, or the GeForce 9400m?
