    so, i just got a macbook pro 15 inch laptop. and i have NO idea on how to use bootcamp, or even if i have to buy it or whatnot.....so if anyone can point me in the right direction it would be greatly appreciated.

    also, once i get bootcamo working, should i get call of duty 4 for my mac version or pc and run it on bootcamp?

    thanks alot!!

    U need to have a copy of Windows with you when you install BC. Just use the BC Assistant to walk you thru the install.

    U can get copy of that game for PC.

    there is a PDF manual for boot camp 2.x there 3.0 is not much different.



    You'll need your OS X DVD a Windows DVD and your Mac of course. Backup your Mac data before you do anything of course.
