    I was given a copy of XP 64 bit for my early 2008 mac pro. I can't install the boot camp drivers because it is not supported. I have the graphics card working and most everything else working except the airport card and all the cool apple stuff like the keyboard controls. and something called the sm driver. Any clues where I can find the remaining stuff.

    That's because there are no drivers for XP 64, and the ones that do exist are spotty at best. XP 64 is a joke anyway. There's a reason it was given to you (for free I'm hoping for your sake).

    Vista 64 on the other hand is amazing, and there are plenty of drivers (on stuff 2 years old or newer).

    I totally agree. Shell out for an OEM copy of Vista Business 64 (about $110) which will take advantage of your eight cores as well as all of your installed RAM. I have not had any problem finding drivers.
