    about 3 problems i had encountered, 1st the stand by mode light didn't turn on when i clicked the turn off my computer button (only shut off or log off can be pick), 2nd it doesn't recognized my network card some how, so i am only able to connect to the internet using XP by going through the computer's wireless connection, 3rd I guess this has been mentioned by several others already about XP couldn't recognized the audio driver

    or just re-install the apple cd that you would have made

    The network drivers that come with bootcamp do not work.

    In the device manager of windows, right click on the ethernet card -> properties. Click driver->update driver. And dont let windows search. Manually choose the directory to where you extract the patch, and it should work.

    Your best bet with BootCamp is to wait for Apple to update it to support the new XP/Vista drivers that are needed on the Drivers CD rather than hunting down individual drivers, especially if you don't exactly possess a good amount of computer know-how. The update is already in the release pipeline, so it shouldn't be too long now before it is released to the public.
