    I have recently installed XP in bootcamp. Apparently XP will not recognize my Mac keyboard. What is the cleanest fix for this? I've heard that there is a software that will fix this but I haven't been able to locate it online. If i have to I will carry a flexible Windows keyboard in my bag but I travel a lot and don't really need to carry more things. Also having trouble getting XP to see the airport card. I was under the impression that bootcamp was a complete package. I'm getting the feeling that someone is milking this one. (Steve&Bill) Thanks in advance.

    did you install the Apple drivers for XP? The drivers should be in that update.

    I have had no problem - some of the PC games i have been playing (most pre 2006 games) do not see the mouse, but if i put in a MS mouse its fine.

    Ditto. Bootcamp assistant does mention about using the leopard dvd to install the bootcamp drivers which installs the bootcamp utility so you can use the built in keyboard functions or the usual function keys (toggle between the 2) and everything works like a champ.

    Without those Apple drivers, yah, the keyboard won't be recognized but as a standard 102k keyboard.
