    The Windows partition on my macbook cannot find my hardware to find the network. I installed the drivers from the Leopard disc already. Any ideas? Thanks

    are you running leopard on ur mac side? if so, reinstall the network drivers (selecting it from within the leopard disk) then restart that should fix the issue

    however if you are running snow leopard on your mac side then you need the snow leopard disk,

    Leopard (10.5)
    Snow Leopard (10.6)

    Hmm, try finding the network drivers on the disk itself, and install in and then restart that should do the trick :)

    do you have a wired connection somewhere were you can plug into? perhaps when you plug in it will recognise the ethernet port and fix the issue
