    So, i dont have my OS X CD with me since im in school right now - I can get it on Sunday. I just picked up a copy of Microsoft Windows Vista Business with Service Pack 1 32-bit from my bookstore. I was wondering if i can install the drives from the Leopard CD later on, and how would i do so.

    From what i can see all i would have to do is boot up vista and then put in the CDs. Is that right?

    Well, you won't be able to do much in Vista without the drivers. So it really doesn't matter. That key doesn't expire.

    No bootcamp drivers mean no wifi, no vga driver, no ethernet... In such case, Windows is totally useles except if you want to do some text editting.

    You'll need the original Leopard disk for first Install of Bootcamp drivers
