    Ok, so here's the deal. I Leopard yesterday, installed it, and then booted up boot camp (ahyuck ;)). I popped in my version of Windows XP Home Edition, and went through the whole installation, finally getting into Windows. I set up linksys and got in the internet, and then tried to do the "boot camp for windows" set up on the Leopard Disc. When I inserted the Leopard Disc, it tells me that boot camp requires windows XP service pack 2. (Does this mean I need to buy another version of Windows?)

    Anyway, the real problem is that after I installed The Orange Box, I tried to start Half Life. The window comes up saying "Preparing to Launch Half Life 2." Then it crashes. I'm wondering, is it because I don't have that version of XP? I installed the directx drivers, so that's not a problem.

    On a side note, Windows is also detecting no sound devices. My iMac obviously has speakers, so I don't know what that could be.

    Much Appreciated.

    Download service pack 2 and upgrade it, then try. It's free.
