    I've got a new MBP coming (sometime never - I live in the UK), and I was intending to install XP SP3 with Bootcamp. I've been reading about some problems that other people have been having and I was wondering if anyone could confirm that it actually works on their new machines?

    Yeah, it, uh, works. What problems besides those resulting from PEBSAK are they having?

    I'm hearing things like, no audio, no wireless and other driver problems...are the drivers on the OSX disc ok for you?

    the Boot Camp drivers that come with new Macs on the first grey restore disc are v 2.1 and will work will XP SP3. ive even gone from SP2 to SP3 with the original Leopard boot camp drivers (not sure if its 2.0 or 2.1) and they still work.
