    I recently setup Windows XP via Boot Camp and thats all fine. What I've found though is that Leopard now identifies itself in Terminal as "windowsxp" .. this is also the computer ID tag found in Console logs, ie: "Mar 19 20:56:53 windowsxp .................... log stuff.........."

    .. Is this a bug of switching between XP and OSX? Or is there something thats been changed that I can change back, so I dont get this showing up?

    In the Sharing Preference Pane, you need to set your computer's name, that should fix it. Or you are on the XP's C: drive which Leopard will call windowsxp.
