    I'm having a VERY hard time finding the drivers for Windows for this mac. The discs are missing, but I'm sure the drivers are out there SOMEWHERE.

    Besides basic devices, sound, isight, etc., is there anything that would be recommended to install as well?

    32-bit of course.

    Did you install the bootcamp drivers?

    P.S. Vista and 32bit? That is so so wrong lols

    No discs...I tried the Boot Camp update from Apple.com but it does nothing at all.

    You'll need the OS X discs to install the drivers. The ones from the apple web site are generally updates to the base drivers from the OS X discs.

    You mean the restore discs? Or could I use my Snow Leopard disc?

    As well, if that doesn't work, how can I boot to MacOS X without being able to hold Option at startup and without the Bootcamp utility installed? My keyboard has to be turned on in a way that the system won't recognize it until the system boots.

    Yes, the restore discs (OS X) have the bootcamp drivers for Windows.

    As for the keyboard issue, it's one that you're going to accept as is, or use a different keyboard.

    Accept as is...as in never being capable of booting into OS X again...

    There has to be SOMEWHERE I can get the boot camp utilities for Windauz.

    Try apple support if you have a valid apple care subscription or the apple forums
