    I hust brought my new MacBook Pro :D, which has Leopard on it.

    The reason for this is that I need to dual boot into windows :mad: due to my degree assignments have to be on a Windows machine.

    Can anyone help, that I understand that Snow Leopard will read, from Mac, the Windows Partition if I bootcamp.

    if this is the case, would you recommend waiting to bootcamp when Snow Leopard comes out, or can I bootacamp not, and when I upgrade to SL, this will enable HFS+ support?

    Any help would be great.

    Go ahead and bootcamp now ... When Snow Leopard is out you can update the bootcamp installed in Windows to version 3 from the SL install disk, which enables the Windows system to read HFS formatted disks.
