    When I boot up now that I have intsalled Boot Camp I ALWAYS get a white screen with no apple logo! The little jingle comes on but then "hangs" on the white screen. Is that normal? Is the computer waiting for me to hold down the CTRL key to choose betwen OS X and XP? Also, my wireless mouse and keyboard do not work in XP under bootcamp! HELP!

    You have to hold the Option key to choose the OS...did you set your main OS as Windows? The white screen comes right before the Windows logo comes up....that's normal.

    As far as getting bluetooth keyboards and mice to work under Windows...forget about it. Big headache. You have to turn off and on everytime you go into Windows. You're better off getting a wired keyboard/mouse for now.
