    After trying to load Boot Camp in my Santa Rosa BlackBook, and not finding the assistant in the Utilities folder, I found this answer, and it worked:

    Hello,

    I called Apple support this morning, and they guided me to the Boot Camp package on the setup CD - just put the Install Disc 1 in, then in Finder, to to Go -> Go To Folder... and put

    /Volumes/Mac OS X Install Disc 1/System/Installation/Packages

    in the dialogue box. There you should see BootCamp.pkg. Running that with all the defaults puts the Boot Camp Assistant in /Applications/Utilities/

    Seems strange that this thing left China without a chunk of Leopard installed. I wonder what else is missing.
