    I still haven't received my Leopard installation discs and am wondering if there's a site out there where you can download the necessary drivers for running Windows XP efficiently on Bootcamp. Thanks. Corey.

    How'd you install Leopard without Leopard...do you have Tiger and want the Leopard drivers?

    No, I bought the Mac which had Leopard installed instore and told I would receive my actual copy in the mail a couple of weeks later. So I'm running Leopard but don't have the disc to install the necessary drivers to run Windows on Bootcamp efficiently and am wondering if there's a site with these drivers around.

    In that case, no. Unless you have a friend whose disc you can borrow.

    Just curious, what store did you buy from that didn't include the disc. That doesn't make any sense.

    I bought the Mac a couple of days after Leopard was released from the actual Apple store. For reasons unknown to me, they didn't have the discs for sale or available with the Mac by then. He explained that I would receive the discs within a couple of weeks and it's been, well, from when Leopard was released until now and they still haven't arrived.

    I'd go back and ask them again, or call applecare

    Yeah, I went in last week and the bloke there rattled off that it may take longer then expected and to be patient but now that I've installed Windows I can't boot into OS X without the install discs and it can't run **** without the drivers...better bloody arrive on Monday!

    (Is there a way to boot OS X, because that would be swell)

    Hold Option at the boot chime and choose your OS X volume.
