    i bought my macbook about 3 months ago, and recently got leopard. i really need windows for certain programs of mine and i used boot-camp with my old windows xp cd (note: its not service pack 2 cd)
    i got windows on my computer working and everything but i DONT have any internet access. i know it says to insert the leopard disc after installation but when i do it just says file "UPDATE" is missing and the disc come back out.
    can someone please help me, ive been looking for these windows drivers everywhere and dont have a clue where to start.

    You're going to need Windows XP Service Pack 2 for Boot Camp.

    I think you should be able to download SP2 from here, and put it on a disk/drive, then install on the Windows side :)

    Are you sure you're picking the right partition to install Windows onto?

    Have you already partitioned the hard drive?
