    i've already installed Vista on my MBA but i have a few problems

    I only have a broadband connection, and I know there are probably drivers available to make the superdrive and ethernet adapter work. Only problem is can only get internet access thru Leopard.

    How on earth do you make the ethernet/superdrive compatible with windows?

    Help is much appreciated!

    Did you install the Boot Camp drivers with your Air's DVD?

    I figured out how to get the drivers for Vista, only one im missing now is the ethernet cable for Vista.

    That drive i dont believe is for vista, and i have no idea how i would access it on the vista partition

    LOLOLOLOL!!!!

    Sorry dude I don't think Tallest Skil intended to sound like that; we do not normally respond to requests for help that way here....

    Post #10 of the link glitch44 provided has directions for ethernet, look for the tnkgrl link.

    I thought the wireless worked in bootcamp though, am I wrong?

    I think you need to learn to read:

    Here's the install guide from Apple for Boot Camp, including how to install the bootcamp drivers.

    Also, post ten of my previous link has the windows drivers for Apple USB Ethernet adapter.
