    Well just installed XP on my boot camp partition. Here is my issue:

    1. The trackpad doesn't seem to be working properly. It's showing under device manager fine but the 2 finger right-click option isn't working.

    2. Is the keyboard supposed to be backlit in XP?

    3. The sound buttons on the keyboard are not working (f11-f12)

    Any ideas are appreciated.

    You probably did, but I'll ask anyway. Did you install the XP drivers from the Leopard install disk?

    Yup everything seemed to go fine too. As I'm typing this the volume adjustor started working.

    Does anyone know if the keyboard is supposed to be backlit in XP?

    I'm pretty sure my MBP keyboard was backlit under XP with Boot Camp.

    I just checked on my Air and the keyboard backlight works in XP. The F5 and F6 keys adjust the brightness as well.

    make sure you use the discs supplied with your MBA to install the bootcamp drivers, not any other leopard disc
